Interior Innovation Award 2014 for The Trompe l’Oeil Collection0 0 5 August 2014
The Trompe l’Oeil Collection of rugs designed for Zollanvari was awarded as Selection by The German Design Council at imm Cologne 2014.
Kilim rugs are world re-known for the simplicity of the sign and the unique flat tapestry weaving.
SoFarSoNear ‘s idea was to inject a little Italian style and combine the traditional handcraft with the motifs familiar to the Italian iconography. A true fusion between East and West, between the classical motifs of two great cultures, Persia and Italy.
What makes the project so unique is also the use of sophisticated UV print to transfer the photographic images onto the rugs.
Innovation and tradition, modernity and history, both representing the two faces of the time we live in.The collection features different themes: Sicilian Baroque with the typical facades of the churches and
palaces of Sicily, Roman Empire with temples and statues, Behind the Gate projections of the shades of a renaissance gate, Lace, elegant gestures with a romantic hint.
