The rug model is derived from part of an acrylic drawing from Ana Popescu’s “Shade” series, which explores the connection between light and space. The works stemmed from the interest in how light and shade can transform different scenes into something new. The relation between light and object – which is not constant – is fascinating for Ana, who visually recreates depth using colours, light and shade, and plays with the contrast they make in relation to each other.
To better translate the shades in the rug design, the model is crafted with bamboo silk insertions that create depth and movement.
