Carpet Edition introduces designer rugs
Designed by Michela Alquati and Sebastian Corso, the Roquebrune collection reinterprets traditional classic motifs and colours into a blaze of lines and forms
With its lively play of colours and geometric shapes, the Roquebrune collection from Carpet Edition recalls the city on Costa Azzurra with the same name, home to a wealth of architectural works and personality of contemporary culture during the belle époque years.
The rugs are designed by designer Michela Alquati and architect Sebastian Corso who together were able to reinterpret traditional classic motifs and colours into a blaze of lines and forms which are as rigorous as they are surprising. Starting with five main masterpieces, each one characterised by a specific design, and each being offered in five colour variations, which in some cases can be customised as per preference or need.
The RB01 and RB02 series rugs were conceived featuring interlaced geometric forms and an irregular perimeter. The RB03s are more linear, while the RB04 and RB05s feature rounded shapes and countless nuances in the lines of the design.
The quality and production technique demonstrate the long artisanal tradition of Carpet Edition. The Roquebrune collection rugs are part of the Hand Made catalog and are realised in New Zealand wool and Tencel with the hand tufted technique. The design is displayed on a vertical canvas and slowly, thanks to a textile gun, the yarn is inserted. Once removed from the frame, the rug is then washed, finished with a cotton fabric glued to the back and finally, after being released of excess fibers, is edged.
