LANDCARPET is a modern area rug series, inspired by nature and farmed landscapes. It shows the world from straight above, as we usually see it only out of the window of a plane.
Based on satellite images LANDCARPET is a captured fascinating aerial view to touch. The stylized fields are of different height and let each rug appear like a miniaturized landscape transforming a rug into a piece of nature in your apartment.
As each culture deals with landscape and farming in a different way LANDCARPET comes in various series, each of them representing a different continent or country. Europe is held in warm green and brown colors, USA comes in very fresh green colors, Africa in a series of earthen tones and Netherlands as a colorful array of flower fields. Italy, a unique piece added purple and yellow tones showing Tuscany in fall.
Bahamas 1/1 is a unique piece of my LANDCARPET rug collection and will be auctioned in renowned auction house Dorotheum on June 5th. While my earliest rugs have depicted mainly farmed landscapes more recent pieces have explored harbors or urbanized environments.
This time I have chosen to work on a rug that explores a more fantastically looking type of master planning. Bahamas rug depicts a luxurious residential development in its early construction phase. A sea-side environment featuring boat canals and roads with strong geometric lines and harsh color contrasts between sand, forestation, villas and the sea. The level of tufting and cutting detail in this high-pile wool rug is the finest yet.
