Martí Guixé’s dislike of design as a stylised object and form sees the creation of a rug used as a canvas.
The Spanish designer collaborated with rug designers Nanimarquina to contribute a contemporary rug to the Still Life With Lights exhibition at Sotheby's during Vienna Design Week.
Guixé used his knowledge of the Drip Painting technique to explore a new and inventive way to transform the traditional design method of a rug into a modern and unique creation.
Squeezing bottles of paint over a white rug in irregular tiled patterns, his “Painted Rug” resembles graffiti in a new form. Through painting by hand, Guixé hopes to create a rug that is valuable to all in appearance and appreciation.
