Description

The “Lutetia” rug from the “Ignorance is Bliss” collection is coloured using upcycled textile dyes that originate from botanical and metal waste and by-products. Commercial textile dyeing causes a significant amount of environmental and health problems due to the chemicals used in the process whereas natural dyeing is rarely employed on an industrial scale. Drinking water supply and agriculture industries are the main waste suppliers for the collection. Leftovers of mostly organically grown plants do not contain toxic additives as they are intended for use in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Flax is versatile, cost-effective, resilient and its cultivation requires far less water and pesticides than cotton.

The “Ignorance is Bliss” rug collection is made from linen; a deliberate choice as it is a durable, resistant, and hypoallergenic material. At the moment, yarns are hand-dyed with 9 natural colours that have been developed from waste. “Ignorance is Bliss” rugs are designed with great detail and hand-tufted by skilled, craft-minded manufacturers.

About the designer


Agne Kucerenkaite is a material designer from Vilnius, Lithuania, who graduated in Design Academy Eindhoven and currently based in the Netherlands. Agne enjoys working with raw materials, transforming them into valuable products, methods, and systems, seeking interaction between design, society, industry, and environment. Her design process is characterized by in-depth research, experimental approach, and hands-on practice, motivated by historical and sociocultural contexts. Technical investigation of seemingly unattractive and industrially driven processes that she finds to be the most interesting source of unexpected links and associations, drive her design work.

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.
