In 2012 Artisan comissioned Ruder Novak-Mikulic and Marija Ruzic to design and develop a series of hand tufted rugs for the brand, as the initial objects of their home accessories collection.
The collection debuted in Cologne at the IMM fair, in January 2013.

Watching the surface of the rug from up close, we percieve it as a relief of colorful triangles, seemingly distributed with no logic or order. But with every step we take away from it, its true character gets revealed.
Chill-im is an unconventional interpretation of the 'bow' pattern, which has been used for centuries in hand made Bosnian rugs as a great part of the tradition and heritage of Bosnia, largely influenced by the ottoman occupation.

All the rugs in the collection were made of 100% new wool, with a combination of hand tufting and hand trimming.
The use of those techniques allows the use of relief as part of the design, which makes it evolve from a two dimenstional surface into a three dimensional object.
