'Spectrum: Killer Knots from Outer Space'
29/04/2019 - During the last edition of Milan Design Week cc-tapis has presented Spectrum: Killers Knots from Outer Space, an all-new collection of hand-knotted rugs presented at the Salone del Mobile fair and in the Piazza Santo Stefano 10 showroom.
From the solar system to the depths of Detroit, Spectrum brings together six designers for an out-of-this-world collection: Martino Gamper, Patricia Urquiola, david/nicolas, Germans Ermicš, Maarten de Ceulaer, Studiopepepe.
 
Art Director Daniele Lora explains of project’s intent: “Spectrum highlights cc-tapis’s endless capacity to research and experiment with different techniques and finishes. Every rug is exhibited as a single experiment, each piece created independently from the others without an aesthetic link or ‘fil rouge’. It is only within the Spectrum laboratory, where they are finally able to mix and mingle, do they solidify their identity together. Our mission is to communicate the possibilities of experimentation within the craft to inspire our clients by showing them what we are capable of.

Multiple planes of brilliant chequerboards clash and crackle in Martino Gamper’s latest collection for cc-tapis. The bright, piercing colours intertwine and overlap in a psychedelic world born from Gamper’s imagination. Hand knotted with Himalayan wool, pure silk and linen, the materials interplay in the same way as the colour-blocked grids, resulting in a brilliant collision of textures and shades. Twisted lines, distorted perspectives and the graphic play typical of Gamper’s designs culminate in five spellbinding new rugs.

Fordite is a byproduct of the car manufacturing industry: a multicoloured stratum of enamel automotive paint that has built up over time within the factory, which is then baked and polished until it resembles a jewel. Inspired by this material, Patricia Urquiola has integrated a similar approach to sustainability in the creation of these rugs. The Himalayan wool, pure silk and aloe used was sourced from the material excess left over from cc-tapis’s regular production process. The rugs maintain the same layered appearance as Fordite, recreated with recycled wool.

An inter-galactic, shape-shifting army of contemporary hand-knotted rugs born from the minds of the cc-tapis design-lab. Taking inspiration from traditional rug motifs and icons, the Rug Invaders have broken-free from their historical past and are now outof-scale and from out-of-space. The 5 invaders: Tabriz Destroyer, Ushak Invader, Kazak Space Shifter, Palmette Lazer Cannon and The Mothership all have their own particular size and shape, conceived to be combined together in a single interior. The Invaders are a new generation of rugs set to conquer and redefine how rugs are used within a space. Invading an interior near you soon.

The friendship between cc-tapis and david/nicolas stretches back to their university days, so its no surprise that the seeds for the Plasterworks Collection were planted over a long, friendly lunch. The restaurant in question was Kaléo, a Beirut spot designed by the duo. Inspired by the triangle patterns that decorate the restaurant’s walls, the motif was spun out into multiple variations that feature soft lines, inventive colour combinations and contrasting textures. Each hand sketched design was then translated into an ultra-fine hand-knotted rug in Himalayan wool and silk.

A constellation of deconstructed forms crash against one another in Studiopepe’s Lunar Addiction collection. Each rug is articulated by a series of contrasts: complex patterns against visual regularity; flat surfaces alongside three-dimensional components; rough versus smooth textures. The rugs’ asymmetrical configurations are interrupted by pure graphic elements, giving each composition a contemporary edge. Each piece is composed of a shaggy pile in natural Himalayan wool juxtaposed against ultra refined and finished sections that are meticulously sculpted by hand.

feathers collection by maarten de ceulaer
Maarten De Ceulaer has always had an affinity for birds. Years ago, he came across the works of John James Audubon and John Gould and ever since has regularly used these illustrations as a source of inspiration. To create each image, De Ceulaer scans, digitally isolates and combines various birds together, often tweaking and morphing them into further abstraction. Shapes, colors, and textures are rearranged in enchanting and absorbing compositions. The collages are then translated into rich and sophisticated rugs, hand-knotted in Himalayan wool and silk. By varying the pile-height a sense of depth is added, emphasising the feathers’ shapes.

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.
