Benjamin Hubert and Layer have developed an ingenious wallet for crypto money.
Best known for his romantic minä perhonen fashion label, Japanese designer Akira Minagawa now extends his poetic approach to the design of Horizon, a densely hand-tufted rug featuring more than 1.9 million bamboo viscose yarns per square meter.
“I try to design clothes so that they last for a long time and improve with everyday use,” says Minagawa. “I do not want to be just a fad or give a strong impact that does not last. I think of rugs in the same way: I think of the charm and allure that it will acquire over a long time.”
Horizon’s deep and richly coloured surface is due to the hand-tufted bamboo viscose, which gives an ethereal shine across the different coloured fields. As the yarns wear down over time, the rug develops a silk-like patina.
Each design includes a large, plain section in one colour, a 2 cm horizontal stripe in another, and a third field in a mélange of the two shades. Working with just two colours to create three different fields results in a harmonious trinity across the design, with natural colours clearly inspired by landscapes.
Horizon is soft to touch, highly durable and environmentally
sustainable. It is also antibacterial, antistatic and
nonallergenic, making it a perfect and calming addition
to private interiors.
Hand tufted. 100 % Bamboo viscose. Custom sizes available.
