Bliss Collection. Mae Engelgeer for cc-tapis
04/05/2017 – Focusing on matter and tribute to color.cc-tapis' new projects introduced at the 2017 Design Week, express the creativity and inspiration of designers who cooperated with the brand. Bliss is the newest collection created by Dutch designer Mae Engelgeer.
The collection rises from experiments the designer made on a sample on which she created curvy shapes and tried to play with 3D effects. She pushed herself not to focus only on straight graphics but to indulge into more catchy forms.
By experimenting and combining different forms and colors and drawing inspiration from the Memphis movement playfulness, Mae Engelgeer designed Bliss Big in perfect harmony with her ‘minimal yet playful’ style.
The carpets came from a mix of forms and patterns arising from different production techniques. The use of Himalayan wool and pure silk makes some part bright transforming them into ‘wall carpets,' real jewels to hang like paintings.
All cc-tapis® carpets are entirely hand-knotted by expert Nepali craftsmen. Great respect for the materials and this ancestral art is reflected in the 'eco-friendly' approach of each production phase. From the choice of the softest, hand-spun Himalayan wool to the use of purified rainwater for the washing of the carpet. All this makes each cc-tapis carpet unique. No chemical product, acid or synthetic fiber are used in the process.
