An artist who trained as an engineer, Fausto Melotti brought an architectural sensibility to his conceptual sculptures. Cerchi makes a modern abstract statement with a geometric motif of mouliné, alpaca merino and silk wool over a plush ground of thin-felted wool.
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.
