YOu may not recall, but a while back we published a beautiful collection of carpets, inspired by the Scottish countryside. Terre Des Hommes is the second collection of rug designs by , inspired by the Aerial theme. Stepping back from the more naturalistic approach taken in Landscapes, the 6 rugs that make up the Terre des Hommes collection employ a more reductive graphical language to create designs that are less explicit in their origins, more open to personal interpretation.
Working from aerial perspectives of a variety of agriculturally ‘formed’ terrains around the world, the abstracted designs reduce these man-made landscapes into their core formal components. While these decorative elements reflect the reality of specific, indigenous cultural farming practices, their ‘visual veracity’ is subverted through the application of a color palette that amplifies the mystery of each design.
