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
Tecnique: Hand Tufting
Finishing: wool pile cut, hand washed and carved.
A blend of New Zealand wool varieties, hand tufted and with a finishing effect that discreetly harks back to a 1960s feel, are the distinguishing features of the carpets from the Joe Colombo Collection. This eclectic mix would have been certainly been to the liking of the brilliant designer, who was always well informed and up-to-date on manufacturing materials and technical details, at least as much as he was also sophisticated, and attentive lover of beauty.
