Description

GRADIENT is a jacquard woven rug made from Merino wool, Mohair, linen, and cotton.

By felting and manipulating the fabric after weaving, the materials change. They start to wrinkle, shrink, move, and distort, revealing their most tactile characteristics. Through this process, different textures and organic shapes are created, looking and feeling luxuriously tactile. As a result, the woven rug gets a three-dimensional character and the graphical design transforms into a variety of tangible textures.

This rug has no real front or backside, since they are both equally valuable. Each side expresses a different feel, a touch to treasure.

This piece is made in collaboration with TextielLab Tilburg.

About the designer


Emma Terweduwe (°1996) is a textile designer based in Ghent, Belgium. In 2019 she graduated with a master degree in Textile Design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. Since then she runs her own textile studio where she works on her designs, focusing on consciously jacquard woven objects for interior and fashion. Emma’s work is defined by the use of raw and natural materials that are subtle yet expressive such as wool and linen. By felting and manipulating, the woven fabrics change: They shrink, move and distort. In that way the materials start expressing their most tactile self. Texture, structure and color are very significant in her work, tactility is what it is all about. In that way she criticises our fast and visually driven society, by creating textile pieces that are meant to touch our tactile senses. “Through a series of carpets, blankets and scarfs I invite the user to thoughtfully touch, feel and treasure. “

Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
