Using simple materials like straw and branches, sculptor Pino Pascali created provocative works that blurred the line between commonplace objects and art. The Paglia rug translates a textural haystack motif with a combination of six yarns over a plush ground of multi-felted merino 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.
