Fabrica + Tai Ping carpets

June 26th, 2013 by retail design blog

Working together with Tai Ping, the leading manufacturer of custom handmade and woven carpets, Fabrica’s designers reinterpret traditional carpet design to craft unexpected narrative objects. From the rural Chinese origins of the company to this Parisian exhibition presented during Designers Days in Paris, the works are influenced by natural elements such as raindrops, curtains and fallen trees. Nine unique pieces are conceived as furniture pieces, shelter and illustrations – folded, rolled and suspended as imaginative extensions of what the carpet can become.

Altogether, the installations pay homage to the diversity of Tai Ping’s craft, interwoven with the creative spirit led by design director Sam Baron. Residents Dean Brown, Catarina Carreiras, Valentina Carretta, Mariana Fernandes, Charlotte Juillard, David Raffoul, Ryu Yamamoto and Giorgia Zanellato, dream up the rug of tomorrow, leaving behind the customary horizontally-placed typology.
