Two models for the Limited Edition by ILLULIAN, the most exclusive line with models designed by celebrities and famous people from the world of design, art and photography: yet another confirmation of the attention devoted by the Brand to a universe of design which is more and more attuned to cross-pollination with other fields: architecture, painting, sculpture, fashion, photography and television.
Every carpet is a story about the personality and the life of its author.
A story narrated and linked by means of the most diversified colour schemes, geometric patterns or fluid forms, ironic or straightforward languages, compositions that lend themselves to different interpretations and invite to reflect.
The Limited Edition collection by ILLULIAN is not just a line of top-quality designer rugs: it proposes unique pieces that can give depth to any environment, like only works of art can do.
Setsu & Shinobu Ito are both Japanese designers, Italian by adoption, with a broad work experience in architecture, interior, product, industrial & packaging design.
Their works have been published and exhibited throughout Europe and Japan and have received numerous awards.
Several of them are now part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Monaco and in the Milan Triennale.
FLYING GRU by Setsu & Shinobu ITO
Two origami cranes flying into a flower garden. Natural and geometric shapes overlap in a balanced ecosystem of curves and angles, underlined by the precious yarn braids of the rug.
The Japanese refer to the crane as the “bird of happiness”.
The wings of the crane were believed to carry souls up to paradise.
Traditionally, it was believed that if one folded 1000 origami cranes, one’s wish would come true.
ORIGAMIX by Setsu & Shinobu ITO
Sakura flowers are floating on water, reflecting and multiplying themselves into geometric ripples.
Overlays give depth to the surface in a well-balanced mix of light and dark shades.
Tied to the theme mindfulness, Japanese cherry blossoms are a timeless metaphor for human existence.
Blooming season is powerful, glorious and intoxicating, but tragically short-lived, a visual reminder that our lives, too, are fleeting.
FLYING GRU and ORIGAMIX are handmade with Himalayan wool, pure silk and vegetable-based colours. Size: customised; price: on request.
