10/10/2019 - cc-tapis presents the brand new Doodles collection designed by British designer Faye Toogood: six different designs and originates from Toogood’s textile artworks, characterized by her unique abstract style and inimitable playfulness. DOODLES INSTALLATION_photo by Omar Sartor

For the occasion, the showroom has been completely rethought to create a minimal setting in which the new rugs take center stage, whilst the original artworks, positioned on the walls throughout the space, initiate a contextual dialogue with the design pieces.
 
Faye Toogood gave cc-tapis access to her intimate artworks, which she created and painted by hand. The collection took over 12 months to develop and Daniele Lora, cc-tapis art-director and partner, says “our intention was not to create photocopies of the original artworks but rather we wanted to try capture the materiality and richness of each piece, we wanted to translate Faye’s expression created through the delicate use of color and shading. The artworks perfectly embody the brand’s philosophy of creating handmade artefacts.”

The overarching aesthetic of the rugs is painterly, abstract and free-thinking as it responds to Toogood’s preoccupation to ‘tinker’ through her work and intuitively explore new styles without boundaries. The Doodles collection draws on these tinkering techniques and the pieces feature a graphic stitching detail that forms curious patterns connecting the playful cut-out shapes. Though the rugs are independently idiosyncratic, they connect to each other through an overarching style of ready-made collage and handmade materiality.

cc-tapis rugs are exclusively hand-knotted in Nepal with Himalayan wool by Tibetan artisans. The collection comprises 40 individually dyed colors, to guarantee the soft and subtle shading achieved. A distinctive texture has also been produced through a unique combination of thick and fine yarn, while the pile of the rug is hand-cut, creating differing heights and textures, from smooth to shaggy pile.
 
The main colors used throughout the designs present soft tones that come from Toogood’s personal palette and that seem to change depending on the surrounding architecture and the type of light. The beige palette varies from almost brown to pale cream, with warm yellow and pink shades, and is declined in many color spots that are visible on the rugs.
