YOu may not recall, but a while back we published a beautiful collection of carpets, inspired by the Scottish countryside. Terre Des Hommes is the second collection of rug designs by Eeuwes Studio, inspired by the Aerial theme. Stepping back from the more naturalistic approach taken in Landscapes, the 6 rugs that make up the Terre des Hommes collection employ a more reductive graphical language to create designs that are less explicit in their origins, more open to personal interpretation.
Working from aerial perspectives of a variety of agriculturally ‘formed’ terrains around the world, the abstracted designs reduce these man-made landscapes into their core formal components. While these decorative elements reflect the reality of specific, indigenous cultural farming practices, their ‘visual veracity’ is subverted through the application of a color palette that amplifies the mystery of each design.
