Atelier Tapis Rouge proudly presents Elettrico: a collection of 14 hand-knotted, silk and wool rugs that celebrate the beauty of natural light.
Inspired by the beauty and philosophy of the natural light spectrum, the collection of 14 mesmerizing futuristic designs harmoniously combines the smoothness of organic form, unique qualities of scientific creation and advanced sustainable and ethical material production to elevate and transform a piece of interior design - the rug – into a work of art.
As a starting point for each design, the atelier's in-house international team of designers, architects, graphic artists and craftspeople design team looked to the electromagnetic spectrum. Four frequencies of electromagnetic radiation and their respective wavelengths and photon energies were translated into a collection of 14 distinctive designs that blend fluid forms with striking color gradients.
A very important value that remains constant in whatever Tapis Rouge does, however conceptually ground-breaking, is the extreme care that they take in ensuring the ecological and ethical impact of its collections.
The physical process of light travel inspired the bold cutting-edge design concept and its neon color spectrum as it turns into different rays, as well as the creative visionaries of the 1980s and '90s who were celebrated for the way in which they created natural forms using advanced technology and employed boundary-breaking methods of production.
"In the 17th Century Isaac Newton identified the colors that make up the visible spectrum. Just as his discovery at a time became the first step for a new era of discoveries and world evolution, we believe that the new Elettrico collection with its futuristic never-before-used shapes, some with cut-out holes which were really challenging for the team to produce, will be a breakthrough in contemporary interior design,” said Natalia Enze, the designer of the collection for Atelier Tapis Rouge. “This collection seeks to change how we perceive rugs in interiors, transforming them from a purely functional element of the home into art objects in their own right – not to mention talking points."
The rugs are created, cut and washed by the atelier’s Nepalese team with the use of only elementary tools, dyes are extracted from natural plants, flowers and trees. Only natural materials - wool and Chinese silk – are used, with all plastics and synthetics omitted. The production of rugs helps to support this community of skilled makers and their families and ensures that the ancient techniques are passed onto the next generation.
Like all of Tapis Rouge's rugs, each design is created to last a lifetime, bringing warmth and energy to the home like a work of art. You can buy the collection directly from our website.
