Dutch Landscapes

9th October 2014

With Dutch Design week on the horizon the worlds design gaze moves to Eindhoven. A project that will be unveiled during DDW is the latest collaboration with the Dutch Design royalty and rug company ICE international.

Commissioning 8 different carpets by individual designers from four "design couples" including Piet Hein Eek, Kiki van Eijk and Joost van Bleiswijk, each has brought their own personal design signatures to hand knotted wool and silk carpets.

Bringing together patterns and colours from folklore, Petra Janssen's rug is a Dutch version of the Persian rug, whilst Joost van Bleiswijk's graphical design appears as if a simple cream rug has been coloured in with charcoal yet on closer inspection plays with texture and weave constructions for the shadowing and pattern.

Kiki van Eijk took a similar rudimentary aesthetic and translated one of her watercolour paintings onto the rug. Believing that a rug is a piece of art on the floor she tried to capture the subtlety of the painting in textile.
