Imaginée par les designers allemands Eva Langhans et Thomas Follner pour Kymo, THE MASHUP est une collection de tapis qui réinvente la tradition ancestrale du tissage. D’anciens tapis orientaux usés, découpés, retravaillés et assemblés pour donner vie à des patchworks contemporains et uniques.
« Using worn and rugged oriental carpets as raw materials, THE MASHUP rugs are made by first stripping down the originals to their bare essentials. The threads are refined using various methods, and are then reassembled precisely as THE MASHUP carpets – in a new, sophisticated patchwork pattern. Steeped in time-honoured techniques handed down through the generations, THE MASHUP gives the age-old oriental carpet modern appeal combined with a perfect, vintage look and feel.
Kymo, from Germany, makes contemporary floorwear. Their approach to floor textiles is best summed up by their brand philosophy: ‘Go on. And create.’ kymo collections are distinctly stylish, classy – and cutting edge. »
