International nomination for Fibre Designs

Fibre Designs has been named as a finalist for the 2011 Hali / Domotex International Carpet Design Award in the “innovation” category. The “Meta” rug from our Visual Silence collection transforms what is often thought of as naive design into a sophisticated, high-end product through the inventive use of humble materials in combination with sophisticated weaving techniques.

The motif, which makes reference to ancient tribal bark-cloth panels from designer, Pierre Antoine’s Central African roots, is re-interpreted for contemporary environments by using un-spun hemp bast fibre pile in authentic colours – which is then finely-knotted to deliver a carpet with a crisp pattern and pile height of great finesse.
“Meta” sits comfortably in both sophisticated modern interiors and brings refined glamour to more relaxed or rustic interiors.
