LANDCARPET Yunnan 1/1
Yunnan 1/1 is a unique piece of the LANDCARPET rug series. It is based on an aerial image of a section of extensive rice paddies in Yunnan/China. The very mountainous Yuanyang region has been shaped into stepped terraces over countless generations by local farmers and is one of the most impressive and famous sites in Southern China. The rug is held in very colorful tones to mimic the effect a sunset has on the rice fields. As rice is harvested more than once a year the different fields vary between, mud, water, fresh and mature rice which is reflected in the differnt greens, blues and reds used in the rug.
Dimensions: 1800x3200mm, 100% New Zealand wool
LANDCARPET is a modern area rug series, inspired by nature and farmed landscapes. It shows the world from straight above, as we usually see it only out of the window of a plane.
Based on satellite images LANDCARPET is a captured fascinating aerial view to touch. The stylized fields are of different height and let each rug appear like a miniaturized landscape transforming a rug into a piece of nature in your apartment.
As each culture deals with landscape and farming in a different way LANDCARPET comes in various series, each of them representing a different continent or country. Europe is held in warm green and brown colors, USA comes in very fresh green colors, Africa in a series of earthen tones and Netherlands as a colorful array of flower fields. Italy, a unique piece added purple and yellow tones showing Tuscany in fall.
