A stroke of luck: In his exhibition “Full House” at the MAKK in Cologne, Stefan Diez develops new perspectives on design in a globalized world and in so doing presents himself and how he works.
An ingenious new carpet collection from Vorwerk flooring is bringing a ‘homey’ touch to the business-site contract sector. The product family “Elementary Shapes” by designer Werner Aisslinger in new colours , shapes and materials combines free-form carpet tiles to form innovative rug islands and runners that set deliberate accents.
The free-form area rug entitled “Leaf” constitutes another segment of “Elementary Shapes”. “Leaf”, devote themself to accenting ‘homey’ islands at a business site and provide creative solutions towards a pleasing spatial atmosphere. The rug areas give a distinct emphasis to lounges, lobbies and meeting sectors. The resultingly satisfying residential look sets them apart from their stern interior architectural environment while giving each area a special touch. The soft, organic shapes are put together from modules partitioned by strips of woollen felt, some in bright, luminous hues. Each of these unusual geometries is available in two different formats.
Three classic wall-to-wall carpet products from the new Projection collection find a new context within the framework of “Elementary Shapes” due to their use in combination with woollen felt: the proven velour product “Frisea”, the classic “Forma”, a velour for business sites, and the new, densely volumed frieze called “Elara”. A slip-resistant backing prevents the rug and carpet areas from shifting on smooth hard floorings. On the other hand, “Elementary Shapes” can still be taken up at any time and relaid at another location.
The colour combinations typical of Aisslinger’s projects are pointedly expressive:
|Colors||shades of yellow
