ASSEMBLAGE is the name of RÖD STUDIO's carpet collection and refers to the tree-dimensional shapes and conceptual story-telling behind the compositions. The collection is inspired by a subjective and eclectic interpretation of the visual identity of the city Marrakech. Originally we got fascinated by the aesthetic complexity of Marrakech where the abundance of colours, patterns and tactility create a tantalizing experience. The goal with this collection is to dissolve and modulate figuration into abstraction. The materials are carefully selected and combine coloured wool yarns with other natural fibres such as horse and goat hair.
ISTANBUL RUGS is inspired by the beautiful Turkish city Istanbul. We were fascinated by the vibrant life and the seductive colours.
The idea was to combine the Turkish aesthetics with our own nordic minimalism and bring it into a clean room where the colours and materials could shine.
The blue indigo color has a strong symbolic value and when it is combined with the velvet fabric the result is intense and creates references to something luxurious, almost decadent. The graphic pattern supports a more contemporary and modern expression.
Materials: Silk and viscose velvet with burnout print.
