A lonely, backlit worker
by Thomas Wagner | 11/11/2010
The Dessus Dessus Dessous carpet, which has been woven from strips of linen, can be traced back to a textile installation entitled "Plier - Entrelacer - Superposer" (Fold - Weave - Overlap) which Atelier Oï created for Designers Saturday 2008 in Langentha
l at the invitation of Peter Ruckstuhl. The starting material for this work, which was nominated for the Design Preis Schweiz 2009 award, was provided by the strips of linen that are normally used for the carpet trim. The transformation from an experiment
al exhibition installation to a product for Edition required both the refinement of technical aspects and an upgrading of the graphic design.
