Small rugs with an original design and organic shapes.
Stones made of wool; a better option than sticks and stones that hurt one’s bones. These wool stones create a path through the rooms of contemporary homes, the perfect way to bring nature inside.
The rugs in the “Stone-wool” collection create a riverbed of smooth pebbles that adapt to long corridors. The irregular contours and colors offer myriad combinations for interiors, acting as stepping-stones for an imaginary stream.
The earth tones adapt to different decorative styles, fleeing from trends, gently reminding you of the basic elements in the world.
Over the last thirty years, Diego Fortunato has developed an international reputation for his conceptual art and for his wide-ranging industrial designs, which have manufactured by many of the world’s leading brands.
He founded his first design studio in 1995 in Barcelona, and his London design studio followed in 2011. The Argentinian-born designer’s lighting, street furniture, rugs, upholstering, and limited edition objects reside between industrial design, sculpture and conceptual art. Deceptively simple, yet meticulously detailed, they show his constant search for formulae rather than merely shapes.
He wants us to feel a story behind his work and sometimes his sense of humour and fantasy.
An accomplished designer, Diego has created long-lasting products for the market.
His timeless designs have become best-sellers over the years.
Stone-wool Stone 2
This technique requires a pistol-like tool to punch the fiber strands into a previously stretched fabric in a frame.
To start the process, the strands are punched into the areas marked by the mapping (a template used to transfer the digital design to the rug support).
Next, the protruding strands are cut and shaved to achieve the desired pile height.
The design is contoured with scissors or a needle in order to correctly define the different areas of the motif.
Once the motif is defined, a layer of latex is applied to the reverse side of the rug to ensure that the strands remain attached to the structure.
To finish, a layer of fabric is affixed to act as a lining, offering a quality finish.
This technique permits curvilinear shapes, different pile heights, as well as the application of different colors within the same rug.
High density and durability.
