Contra

Dune

Evoking the spatial canvases of Lucio Fontana, which blurred the lines between painting and sculpture, Contra features a textural ground of alpaca merino wool plied with silk wool, highlighted with a combination of thin-felted wool, multi-felted merino, and cotton yarns. Pair it with Contra-S, designed for stairs.

The 2022 Atelier 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.

Living Art

Arte Povera evolved a new visual language that was experiential, ever-changing, and alive to the senses. Each Atelier rug is an expression of living art, a one-of-a-kind textile woven by artisans and made to be touched.
