The Tidal Collection explores the symbiotic relationship between color and ornament. Often color is an afterthought, but in this collection it has been developed to become the primary element. A two-dimensional surface becomes three-dimensional as the color creates movement and animation in the design. “I start with basic geometric forms, circles, squares and rectangles and I let the design transform them,” Ermičs says of the process. To create the monochromatic fade effect, cc-tapis devised an entirely new coloring system, combining threads of Himalayan wool in alternating saturations in a labour-intensive process that resulted in a delicate meditation on color and form.
