Illulian and Setsu & Shinobu ITO: discover the new Limited Edition rugs
Flying Gru and Origamix bring the fascination for the exotic land of the Rising Sun into haute-couture rugs
Two models for the Limited Edition by ILLULIAN, the most exclusive line with models designed by celebrities and famous people from the world of design, art and photography: yet another confirmation of the attention devoted by the Brand to a universe of design which is more and more attuned to cross- pollination with other fields: architecture, painting, sculpture, fashion, photography and television.
FLYING GRU by Setsu & Shinobu ITO
Two origami cranes flying into a flower garden. Natural and geometric shapes overlap in a balanced ecosystem of curves and angles, underlined by the precious yarn braids of the rug.
The Japanese refer to the crane as the “bird of happiness”. The wings of the crane were believed to carry souls up to paradise. Traditionally, it was believed that if one folded 1000 origami cranes, one’s wish would come true.
ORIGAMIX by Setsu & Shinobu ITO
Sakura flowers are floating on water, reflecting and multiplying themselves into geometric ripples. Overlays give depth to the surface in a well-balanced mix of light and dark shades.
Tied to the theme mindfulness, Japanese cherry blossoms are a timeless metaphor for human existence. Blooming season is powerful, glorious and intoxicating, but tragically short-lived, a visual reminder that our lives, too, are fleeting.
