A red carpet honours very special guests – most people are not allowed to walk on it. Denying something to some emphasises the privileged status of a select few. What applies to people also applies to things and spaces.
Shelves full of books turn a living room into a library. Wallpaper decorates walls and obscures their banality. A good frame ennobles the picture it contains. Wherever we look, we see culturalising forces that bestow significance on the banal and mundane, that elevate, distinguish and embellish it.
A floor covering is literally the foundation for “life on the ground”. Thus, carpets become furniture, delimiting areas for certain rituals, indicating routes through the space and providing direction. And they form boundaries – between ordinary areas that anyone can enter and coded spaces imbued with special significance as places reserved for certain activities and postures.
White, tufted velour carpet (Antron® carpet fibre) finished with chromojet printing. As originally tattooed on skin, the exact resolution and tone of the Japanese Koi is achieved with PA 6.6 (Antron® carpet fibre) and gives this carpet its unique appeal.
This carpet is woven with a single warp yarn (Antron® carpet fibre). The diversity of the individual weaves gives the carpet a very refined, rich pattern. Ornamentation is king here, and the technology used can produce very sophisticated results.
Rough, industrial tufted fleece, shot through with glossy, two-tone rows of loops (Antron® carpet fibre). The extreme contrast between the two materials gives the carpet a surprising clarity and elegance. The delicate loops are slightly elevated and resemble lines of text.
This tufted loop-pile carpet combines the materials PA 6.6 (Antron® carpet fibre) and lurex. The coarse surface of the yarns and the restrained shades show that there are many different approaches to finishing and that each one makes a unique statement.
The weaving method for this carpet uses a single warp yarn (Antron® carpet fibre). Special weaving technology creates high-low effects that appear three-dimensional, making the labyrinth motif even more realistic.
The different thickness of the yarns and the subtle shades of gloss give this tufted, deep-pile carpet (Antron® carpet fibre) its high-quality feel and look. The alternating lighter, glossier stripes and darker, matter ones creates a style strongly reminiscent of the traditional pinstripe.
This carpet gets its strikingly glossy look from 100% metallic yarn (Antron® carpet fibre). The woven loops lie close together, like the finely twisted cords of rep cloth. The slight elevations of the loops break up the light to a high degree, emphasising the glossiness of the fibres.
The surface of this tufted carpet looks like floating gold. The special cross-section yarn with its multitude of very delicate filaments (Antron® carpet fibre) gives the carpet a high-gloss, sophisticated look.
Tufted pile carpet with a slight gloss. The very densely tufted fibres (Antron® carpet fibre) create a homogenous, firm surface structure. The white rhinestones are added to the carpet afterwards. The otherwise smooth surface is thus broken up by numerous sparkling dots.
