Tapis Rouge was proud to present the Iceberg rug at Spazio Rossana Orlandi as part of Milan Design Week 2019.
For the second consecutive year Tapis Rouge presented its new collections at the prestigious Rossana Orlandi Gallery and took part in Milan Design Week. In 2019, we were proud to present the pinnacle of our artisanal technique, the Iceberg rug. 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. The contrast of the light blue and almost white of the snow surrounding the water’s depths symbolise purity and the eternal desire for harmony and perfection.
This concept of the fluidity and movement of water in its various states was carried over into the booth, designed by architect Natalia Zelenova. The Iceberg represents water and depth in the states of ice and liquid, similarly the booth took the square as its module and displayed it in several materials, such as plastic, glass, netting and soft textures. By immersing the Iceberg in this module, Zelenova displayed the core concept of the rug and the stand as harmony and homogeneity, playing with the planes of the square and creating a sensory deprivation chamber for the centrepiece.
