Spectrum: Killer Knots from Outer Space Rug Invaders by CC-Tapis

Spectrum Killer Knots From Outer Space

Spectrum: Killer Knots from Outer Space, is the name of the new collection of hand-knotted rugs by CC-Tapis. The title alone is fascinating to begin with and the rugs are beautiful as well! We suggest you visit CC-Tapis; it’s worth your while.

You can visit both at the Salone del Mobile fair and at their showroom (Piazza Santo Stefano 10)

Design Collaboration

The collection is made in collaboration with Patricia Urquiola, David/Nicolas, Martino Gamper, Germans Ermics, Maarten de Ceulaer, Jean-Marie Massaud, Cristina Celestino, Mae Engelgeer, cc-tapis Design-Lab and Studiopepe.

Rug Invaders installation

The Rug Invaders installation is designed by Studio MILO and CC-Tapis it’s inspired by space age fantasies from the retro-futuristic eighties and post-modern design. The true futuristic part is that the materials used for the presentation are designed to be completely recyclable

“An inter-galactic, shape-shifting army of contemporary hand-knotted rugs born from the minds of the cc-tapis design-lab. Taking inspiration from traditional rug motifs and icons, the Rug Invaders have broken-free from their historical past and are now out of- scale and from out-of-space. The 5 invaders: Tabriz Destroyer, Ushak Invader, Kazak Space Shifter, Palmette Lazer Cannon and The Mothership all have their own particular size and shape, conceived to be combined together in a single interior. The Invaders are a new generation of rugs set to conquer and redefine how rugs are used within a space. Invading an interior near you soon.” (cc-tapis)

Gaetano Pesce’s Up Chair Celebrates it’s 50th Anniversary

50th Anniversary

Gaetano Pesce designed the Up Series in 1969, so this year B&B Italia celebrates the 50th Anniversary of this iconic chair set. During Milan Design Week 2019 the showroom at the Brera Design District was filled to the rim with the armchair and pouf UP5_6, upholstered in green and beige stripes. A lovely installation which made us, at Mimi Berlin, very happy!

Suffering Majesty at Piazza del Duomo

The celebration of the “la Mamma’ chair continued at the Piazza del Duomo, where a humongous larger-than-life in salmon-pink replica of the chair is pierced with arrows and is surrounded by wild animals. The art-sculpture is named ‘Suffering Majesty’ and is made to continue the conversation on violence against women in Italy. It will be present until April 14th 2019.
