The Gentle Carpet Philadelphia
The Gentle Carpet
G.T.DESIGN, the pioneer Italian manufacturer of contemporary rugs, will showcase “The Gentle Carpet”, an installation of timeless carpet designs, at the Design Philadelphia 2019 Festival.
The Gentle Carpet, curated by G.T.DESIGN’s Creative Director Deanna Comellini, takes center stage in selected design stores around the world such as Dom Interior (New York, U.S.A.), Cassina IXC (Tokyo, Japan) and Salvioni Design Solutions (Milan, Italy). The touring exhibition has arrived now in Philadelphia.
The display is designed as an understated and harmonious complement the space furnishing, highlighting the essential role of the textile component in interior design and architectural projects; alternately, the signature rugs are rolled-up like parchment and presented in precious cabinets to illustrate the fine details of the materials.
A pioneer in the contemporary rug industry, G.T.DESIGN combines artisanal techniques and manual craftsmanship with cutting edge technology to produce unique and luxurious products with an unparalleled attention to detail. An artistic approach to the product is fueled by a constant drive to explore the design process, ranging from the research of natural fibers and technical yarns, to new weaving systems, from hand painting methods to digital printing.
After forty years of activity, research and experimentation remain at the core of the brand co-founded by Deanna Comellini and Michele Preti that resulted, for example, in the creation of first contemporary rug handmade with precious coconut fiber (Coconutrug), and an innovative use of as viscose to capture and reflect light (Kama rug).
As Deanna Comellini, the brand’s art director, pointed out: “We always look to the past to review the signs and signals and capture possible recognizable inspiration; we also look to the future to extend further into unknown territories and experiment something new”.
