On a regular basis CSrugs collaborates with fantastic national and international designers. We expose their work in the online design gallery.
As we constantly look for special connections, we invite quite a lot of designers in Asten. They instantly find inspiration by CS rugs’ production unit and colour studio. We meet, we discuss and we start a profound trajectory of turning an idea into a tufting art work. Sometimes yarn and production techniques are heavily challenged. As a result we launch a series of very diverse and unique dutch design rugs or wall carpets.
All designers are well known and respected in their field. The design gallery collection comprises a diverse group of product designers, architects, graphic designers and artists.
Curator Richard Hutten: “The briefing to the designers is as simple as it is complex. I ask them to design a rug within the boundaries of what the production can make. But I also force them to push the limits of what is possible. The aim is to create a collection which shows the personal interest and fascination of the designer. Because in a time where walls are being built, and around the globe people end up in prison for their opinion, it is important to give the designers a platform for their outspoken ideas”.
Feico Dieudonne, CEO of CSrugs is extremely proud of the collection: “Working with all these very talented designers forces us to profoundly research the possibilities of our production method and gives us new knowledge which is useful for future projects. Thus, a big shout out to Richard Hutten for bringing all these brilliant minds together. The designers collection brings CSrugs to the next level and shows the world what we are capable of and what we are standing for”.
The diversity of the design gallery collection is highly inspirational! What do you think?
A considerable amount of design rugs have been part of the FREEDOM project: FREEDOM
