RUGS ON DISPLAY

DESIGNED BY ESTUDIO CLARO
To the south, a rhythm unites people in the streets and makes them forget their differences. The drums vibrate leading people to a trance, where they enjoy that primitive essence that does not change. intense colors, vibrations and movement are the characteristics of this rug, which aims to generate in others what Uruguayans feels when listening to candombe, to the rhythm of “cuatro negras” for compass.
THE HAT AND THE DRUM
COMPOSITION: MOHAIR WOOL & BOTANICAL SILK
SIZE (CM): 200X200
PILE HEIGHT (MM): -- APPROX
DESIGNED BY DIARIO
The design of this rug is the result of a graphic experimentation of two of the most symbolic elements of the candombe: The Hat and The Drum. The circular forms of both elements merge, generating a concentric element. volumes are mixed with sounds, geometric figures with organic ones, and a palette of earth colors typical of the “Lonja”, the fire and the Río de la Plata. the result is a sophisticated gradient effect with a simple and contemporary aesthetic.
SIZE (CM): 150X190
PILE HEIGHT (MM): 14 APPROX

The idea was developing an innovative, distinctive and unique hallway rug. after several color and shape studies, we took 2 weeks to create the flow, hand-tufted rug composed by four mixed raw materials, where more than 200 triangles were designed and painted one by one to form this beautiful geometric rug.
