Designed by Tilla Goldberg for OBJECT CARPET, “Desire for textile”, is the guiding principle of the carpet brand’s cooperation and new collection that has given carpets the central stage, where people are active, creative, communicate with one another, and can relax and feel comfortable.
In the early design phase, textures and colours were created, tested and combined to play with their effects.
The material and colour collages featured shaggy sheepskin next to fine raw silk and course raffia, trendy nail varnish and bright Yves Klein blue.
Three long years of experiments and tests in the colour laboratory led to the creation of new structures and product development, as there were a number of obstacles with respect to technical feasibility.
The result is praiseworthy: a collection with eight new materials in 111 colours.
Interesting structures, sometimes finely intertwined, sometimes with concise knobs or with a dense pile, give each of the carpets a special appearance.
Names like SKILL x CHILL or MOVE x GROOVE characterize the feeling, mood and atmosphere of the respective look.
The colour variations, from subtle natural to surprisingly experimental, play a decisive role.
Like a new outfit, their refined interplays change the carpets’ visual effects, and create the best conditions for use in different types of rooms, whether in a hotel room, a lounge, an educational institution or a prestigious office.
The versatile carpets have striking effects and are easily combinable with architectural elements to shape the atmosphere of the entire building.
SKILL x CHILL is comprised of rippled loops and subtle shine, is both protective and metallic, and has a certain glamour to it.
MEET x BEAT reinterprets nature with its striking texture and strong blend in a surprising new way.
MOVE x GROOVE is the chameleon of the new collection with its unexpectedly diverse and seemingly endless structures and colour schemes. Its design plays with alternating close-up and distant effects. Matt and grainy in texture, it appears best on large surfaces.
FLOW x GLOW reveals its sophistication in its details, and is natural and artificial at the same time. Small coloured sparks flicker out of the regular structure in its sisal look.
DEAL x FEEL is quite expressive despite its fine loop. Intertwining matt and shiny, wool and cotton create a high-contrast blending effect, either in pastel or bright colours.
HIGHS x SIGHS conveys a sense of warm elegance and security. With its dense pile, the carpet is
so invitingly soft that you will want to sit down on it and let out a relaxed sigh.
CRAZE x CHASE is evocative with its unconventional, contrasting dynamics that bring old patterns to new light. Original colour combinations and business-like tones can open a vast range of spaces, even in museums.
WALK x TALK, on the other hand, is a discreet and minimalistic carpet that could even be staged in parliamentary buildings as an elegant understatement.
From business glamour to chameleon optics, expressive colours to soft natural tones, the new collection from OBJECT CARPET x Ippolito Fleitz Group reflects the joy in the variety of structures, surfaces and colours.
It is a “desire for carpet” as well as a desire to play with the room as a stage. All the materials are available as sheet material, acoustic tiles and RUGX fitted carpets.
“With our knees on the carpet and our head in the world, we have created a collection that is particularly suited to our customers’ requirements,” states Daniel Butz, Managing Director for OBJECT CARPET.
