Touch – A Collection of Sensuous Rugs

Weave

The modern architecture often appears cold, hard and distant. This is partly due to a very one-sided focus on the visual sense, while the other senses are neglected.

The project investigates how the tactile surfaces of the weaving techniques in combination with the texture of the materials can contribute to a more varied sensory experience of modern architecture – including the home.

The result has become a collection of three woven rugs, each with their own tactile surface, which can be combined and arranged after changing room conditions, as well as various social activities.

The inspiration for the visual expression of the rugs is taken partly in the geometric and straight shapes of the building The Red Wall by architect Ricardo Bofill, and partly in the organic and random aesthetics of the American desert.
