COLLECTION PHILOSOPHY

«I have always admired the stairs, their grandeur and grace, the beauty of architectural forms and the elegance of simple lines forming endless paths.

The ‘La Scala’ staircase is not only a functional element, but also an important decoration of every interior - from a minimalist villa to a luxurious palace.

Traveling through Italy with its magnificent architecture, I met many different staircases, and some of them were permanently imprinted in my memory. That's why I dedicated this collection of carpets to the multi-faceted image of the staircase shown at an unusual angle».

COLORS
«I chose colors telling about the history of cultural heritage and handicraft traditions, a timeless class and the modern way of life. I found inspiration in the shades of frescoes in Pompeii, sometimes faded, sometimes surprisingly bright, in the spectacular paintings by Mark Rothko, in everything that passed the test of time. These colors enrich my ideas and give them historical authenticity, which is important for those who are interested in a design that can retain its relevance for a long time. ».
Mike Shilov
Tapis Rouge craft workshops in Nepal carried out painstaking work on complex color and texture combinations gained both by using traditional techniques and applying new approaches. In the process of working out the color, a record number of halftones, an alternation of threads of the same shade and different textures, and many other technologies were used to obtain the effect of depth and complexity.
When preparing a layout for production, each sketch was printed by the Tapis Rouge colorists in the technical drawing map; and in order to achieve shade-changing colors, it was necessary to draw each knot by analogy with the pixel system.

COMPOSITION

The simplicity of the forms is permeated with the brilliance of the silk thread, and the expression and dynamics are balanced by the density of the texture. Modern features complying with the canonical proportions make it possible to assemble a balanced interior.

Thin, clear lines are woven into a heterogeneous texture, while the architectural severity of the elements turns into soft plasticity of the carpet through the bionics.

In addition to the philosophical connotation of the staircase as a symbol, the graphics provides additional geometry and multidimensional space.

QUALITY

A high level of tactile qualities and an additional visual volume is the result of a well-considered sequence of textures of New Zealand wool and Chinese silk.

Customer-tailored approach allows you to find a solution for any project. According to the author's intention, each of the graphic drawings implies a combination with a number of color backgrounds, which, at the client's request, can be offered by the author of the collection. This service is included in the standard carpet price. The capabilities of Tapis Rouge Atelier enable, inter alia, to make the carpet visually softer or stricter, to adjust the color scheme to warm or cold colors, as well as to adapt the carpet to the desired size.

The collection is presented only in the Tapis Rouge gallery at Savvinskaya Embankment, 23 s 1.
