The rugs are hand knotted in Nepal, made of a blend of wool and silk threads. Inspired by lily pads floating on water, we translated these leaves and petals into geometric lines and shapes, experimenting with filled and non-filled areas. Deep and vibrant colours are used to represent the lily flowers surrounded by calmer shades of blue, green or grey, reminiscent of ponds hues in the evening.
Inspiration is taken from the lenticular Israeli artist Yaacov Agam who’s work we have been familiar with since childhood. He revolutionised the world of optic perception and kinetic illusions in art. An iridescent collection, capable of changing from the vivid colours of daytime to the less bright shades of the evening, just like the mirror of water of a lake that changes its reflection.
