The first concept revisits in a modern way the ancient pattern with the ability to evoke the past. Creating a compositive order starting from the foundational pattern of one of the pavements, highlighting the beauty of imperfection and constituent harmony. The phases of evolution are like a stratification of pattern, colours, and three-dimensionality. That is the starting point for a carpet that presents different tactile sensations. To create this piece we used two techniques ‘ranos’ and ‘fiocco’ which can be found in the central and eastern areas of Sardinia – Italy, but it’s the first time that they are combined together. This is a particular type of stitched relief, where the pattern is formed from the countless grains incorporated into the material.
