PROFUMO - by Marta Giardini
The subject is only an excuse to let the imagination run wild in the Profumo rug collection designed by Marta Giardini. Vibrant shades in bamboo silk and soft wool join forces to create images and patterns inspired by plant life, using age-old artisan crafting. The elements from nature – leaves, flowers, pistils and blooms - appear to form gravitational waves, shapes, complex patterns and a sequence of traits reminiscent of a bird’s eye view of grass meadows wafting in the wind. The multiplication of the elements is a complex circuit created with a harmonious weave, an endless interaction of full and empty components; this is an entity where style and elegance belong to something contemporary and is not defined solely by the present.
