The Floor Is Lava, the power of vulcanoes for Carpet Edition’s rugs
The power of volcanoes, which explodes in a chaotic river of magma and lava, inspired the new The Floor Is Lava rugs from Carpet Edition, an exclusive collection designed by PLACéE, design editor of experimental and refined pieces.
The collection includes six pieces with non conventional shapes, bichromatic and interpreted in a pop style: the texture of the rugs seem to melt from the extreme heat, creating a design with a melted effect reproduced through decomposed and shaped lines.
In New Zealand wool and Tencel, the The Floor Is Lava rugs express their energy with bold and intense colors taken from nature, like the warm red-orange of the Fire Line, or the ashy charm of Lava Line and Carbon Plain.
The color palette extends also to more vivid shades, which come from the digital and gaming world such as greenback green, neon blue and orchid pink, as seen in Deep Mint Line, Eolian Blu Plain and Pink Orchid Plain.
The Floor Is Lava rugs are produced with the hand tufting technique, where the design is laid out on a vertical loom and the yarn is inserted with a textile gun; the rug is then cleaned of excess fiber after which the borders are finished. A sophisticated technique for “explosive” carpets.
