Art – 9 dutch designers2020-12-03
During this year’s Salone del Mobile in Milan, Carpet sign launches a daring collection of limited-edition rugs. Under the Art Direction of Richard Hutten, the ‘crème de la crème’ of creative Holland made outspoken designs which will be exposed under the name Freedom.
Not only product designers, but also an architect, a graphic designer and an artist contributed to the collection: Irma Boom, Joep van Lieshout, Sabine Marcelis, Studio Makkink & Bey (Rianne Makkink, Jurgen Bey), Christien Meindertsma, Jolan van der Wiel, MVRDV architects (Winy Maas, Jacob van Rijs, Nathalie de Vries), Richard Hutten and Wim Bos.
The FREEDOM collection showcases the possibilities of the production facilities of Carpet Sign which were used by the designers as their playground. The briefing to the designers was as simple as it is complex: ‘Design a rug within the boundaries of the production, but try at the same time to push the limits of the possibilities’. The aim was to create a collection which shows the personal interest and fascination of the designer. In a time where walls are being built, and around the globe people end up in prison for their opinion, it is important to give the designers a platform for their outspoken ideas.
