Nature becomes art in the conceptual sculptures of Arte Povera protagonist Giuseppe Penone, whose work uses gestures to alter natural forms. Albero creates a gestural motif using twisted wool plied with linen over a blend of cotton and merino wool yarns. See Albero-S for its companion stair runner.
This collection elevates textiles to living art. Inspired by Arte Povera, a Post-War Italian art movement that used simple materials to create works of artistic expression, each rug is an homage to these visionary artists—transcending the boundaries between art and nature, artist and artisan.
The Atelier collection is a series of limited-edition pieces created and designed by Sylvie Johnson and the Merida team.
