Cartesio and Cartesio Outline by Elena Salmistraro for CC Tapis

Designed by young Italian designer Elena Salmistraro, this rug design pays homage to the 1884 novel Flatland written by Reverend Edwin A. Abbott. “Triangles, lines, circles and squares overlap, meet and collide, becoming conscious of each other, just as they do in the novel, unaware of the colors and the magic they hold,” said the designer. The design is made in two versions, one is tactile and rough, the other softer and lighter. CC Tapis rugs are made with Himalayan wool purified with rainwater and hand-woven using traditional techniques by Tibetan artisans.

Pixel by Paolo Ulian for Antoniolupi

Pixel is a cylindrical freestanding wash basin by Italian marble sculptor Paolo Ulian. The concept for the design derives from the digital image, which is made up of point-like elements called pixels. The basin is covered with a layer of marble mosaic, where each piece can be chipped away and removed, thus creating unique, pixelated patterns on the surface.
