Pathways that originate from the union of passion for textile fibers, high quality and craftsmanship, and experience in making custom made products that can be customized in shape and size. This is how the new Carpet Edition collection of rugs designed by AMDL CIRCLE, a multidisciplinary studio founded by Michele De Lucchi, came to life. The wide range of sizes and colors allows for an infinity of combinations: six are the irregular polygons that, joined by means of special velcro coins, give life to the new Sentieri. And, anyone can design their own at any time.
The inspiration harks back to the Cuzco walls and the ancient Roman cobblestone streets obtained by interlocking different stones but arranged in perfect harmony with each other. The same balance of structure and dimension can be found in the new Carpet Edition rugs.
The road is also an true metaphor for human life which is shaped and changed with the passage of time. The same strong and clear identity, defined especially by color and aesthetic combinations, is expressed here in all its monochromatic, tone on tone, and patchwork originality.
Its narrative cannot leave out the story of the young Carpet Edition brand, which, founded in 2005 in the province of Brescia, finds itself in the last few years - fundamental to the design and fine tuning of the Sentieri philosophy - to be immersed in a much larger conversation that has seen its home city called to represent Italian Culture in 2023, together with Bergamo.
A dutiful step backwards, not only into the past, but also into more recent history, which has seen the return of one of the symbols of Roman Brixia, the Winged Victory, in the new Capitolium setting curated by Spanish architect Juan Navarro Baldeweg. The same setting was the inspiration of Carpet Edition's homage to the opus incertum building technique which reappears in the irregularity of Sentieri rugs, and to the typical urban planning of the Roman city, based on the meeting point of cardo and decumanus.
Sentieri rugs presented for the first time at the Salone del Mobile 2022 are ready to take us on a voyage back in time to discover a contemporary tale rooted in Italian history and culture.
At the end of this route, on the ancient decumanus maximus, we find again the Tempio Capitolino, the starting point for possible changes in direction and the perfect location to preview the new Carpet Edition productions.
Large or small rugs of irregular design ready to satisfy every need in a way that anyone who wishes to can have an object that satisfies them from the point of view of composition, and, can fit into different spaces.
Now anyone can find and follow their own pathway and call it by name, as did the AMDL CIRCLE team members: Filippo, Alberto, Salman, Martherita and Greta.
Together with the Sentieri collection comes a new digital experience: a platform with a web configurator to design your own path in total autonomy, transforming it into a unique piece.
With the new configurator, accessible directly from the site my.carpetedition.com, in the section dedicated to Sentieri designed by AMDL CIRCLE for Carpet Edition, the user can easily select how to personalize the rug assembling forms, sizes and colors, preview it through a 3D reconstruction with high level graphic rendering, confirm or revise the details of the selections, and send the request directly to the production department.
Once again Carpet Edition confirms the value of Made in Italy with a new Hand Made collection.
