The idea at the basis of this collection is the use of tri-dimensional shapes in a product that by definition is bi-dimensional. The inspiration draws from an analysis of the geometries of Japanese origami and in particular on the paper that is used to create them (Kami). A thin sheet of light paper that is shaped into complex volumes and becomes an articulated object. The same happens for these carpets that, thanks to the skillful hands of the artisan, it acquires deep, tri-dimensional and perfectly geometrical volumes within a monochrome surface. The ability of the weaver is then important, but at the same time, the work of the engraver is paramount. Kami Kami carpets are produced on demand, with tailor-made dimensions.
