Moiré

2023. rug collection for CC Tapis

The Moiré Collection is the result of Objects of Common Interest’s research into the patterns which exist in natural materials. Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis, founders of the studio, have applied their multidisciplinary approach to a collection which combines visual research and the application of new production methods to 3 rug designs: Zig-Zag, Splash and Quadratic, “the 3 shapes are almost like cutouts of an endless landscape, frozen moments in time, samples extracted to be studied up close”. A collection which is the juxtaposition of the contemporary with the traditional and the with artisanal craftsmanship.

OoCI combined these visual studies with 3 unconventional monochromatic shapes, that expand in all directions, an ever-evolving pattern. The dense and complex design is expressed and reveals itself through the reflection of light, an effect achieved by combining wool and Tencel (a sustainable fiber which has a shine like silk). Jacquard weaving allows for designs which would be near to impossible to create using cc-tapis’ Tibetan hand-knotting techniques, giving life to the Moiré collection and it’s deep, watery pattern.
