The Iceberg Rug at Fuorisalone 2019

For the second year running, Tapis Rouge will be presenting at Rossana Orlandi's gallery as part of Milan Design Week.

At this year’s Fuorisalone, Tapis Rouge is proud to present the pinnacle of its artisanal technique, the Iceberg rug, created specifically for the exhibition. This exceptional masterpiece took over a year of scrupulous high-skilled work: 700 hours of sketching, 600 hours of technical map development, 450 hours of colour and texture adjustments and 1200 hours of weaving, cutting, washing and drying.

 

Made from the best-selected yarns of New Zealand wool and the finest Chinese silk, the Iceberg’s uniqueness lies in its vast combination of thirty shades of blue, as well as the continuous variation of pile heights, it is the quintessence of skill. The distinctly feminine essence of the rug, reminiscent of the hidden expanses of the ocean, draws the audience in with its enigmatic and mysterious depth of perception, seemingly imprisoning the world’s secrets in the deepest shades of its colours.
