Isola echoes designer Joe Colombo’s aesthetic, in which a strong sense of irony smooths its almost-science fictional essence. This carpet reintroduces the graphic design element visible in technical drawings penned by Joe Colombo for the Hoecht stand at the Dusseldorf plastics fair in 1970.
Pile composition: 100% New Zealand wool

Joe Colombo has left many examples of the originality of his intuitions, deriving from constant research into new technologies and from a deep sensitivity in establishing a relationship between humans and the constantly evolving habitat. Joe Colombo introduces the relationship between space and time in design and he defines furniture as autonomous, flexible, coordinated, convertible, and independent from the architectural contest.
