The Arte Povera movement brought nature into conversation with art. Inspired by the manipulated tree forms of artist Giuseppe Penone, Tronco features a gestural motif rendered with silk wool, multi-felted merino and alpaca merino wool, with subtle glints of linen.
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.
