Born from refined and meticulous research on raw materials and the world of colour, comes a new collection of rugs in organic wool by Amini Carpets. The stand of the Milan based company really stood out for me at Domotex and I loved to learn more about the carpets and the beautiful mood boards the research on materials and colour.
The result of this meticulous research has given life to Ciclopi collection, designed by Elisa Ossino. An architect and interior designer I covered different styling projects of from my Milan trips. such as the H+O Apartment. or the De Padova showroom. Sicilian, she trained in Milan, where she studied at Polytechnic University. Her work combines geometric abstraction, monochromes, metaphysical and surrealist references.
Ciclopi Collection by Elisa Ossino
The collection consists of a series of larger rugs, with rounded and soft forms, and a line of smaller rugs to be overlaid to create extemporaneous solutions that redesign the way space is experienced, giving life to many uses: from seating to headrest or support.
The colour palette is conceived in natural tones. The design of a circle inscribed within the irregular figure of the rug has suggested the formal recollection of the eye of the cyclops, inspiring the name of the collection. The material composition and the natural dyeing method are the authentic protagonists of a collection that pays particular attention to the theme of the environmental impact.
