ege introduced Industrial Landscape for the first time at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2016. The collection features seven designs available as carpet tiles and broadloom creating different expressions within each design theme.
London, one of the most characterful cities in the world, is the source of inspiration behind this carpet collection. It interprets the gritty backdrops of railways, tunnels, factories, workshops and warehouses. Materials so prevalent that they make a huge impact. Surfaces – cracked paving stones and brick blocks make up the crumbling industrial landscape while the massive tidal River Thames splits the city in two, and new reflective glass towers begin to dominate the skyline.
Tom Dixon explains, “We have created a deconstructed brick pattern, a pattern inspired by the railway lines of London and one that refers to the Thames and the grey muddy water of the river. We also have a pattern that has more to do with down market aesthetics in the form of crazy paving. So, the collection is a series of patterns and textures that come naturally from the building process or the erosion process.”
For the Clerkenwell Design Week, Industrial Landscape will be on showcase at the ege/camira showroom in Britton Street.
