The abstract paintings of Barnett Newman employed simple lines on a field of color to create the illusion of balance and place. Arrivo sets a modern tone with stripes of silk wool against a monochromatic ground of thin-felted wool, an art-inspired textile of soothing sophistication.
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.
