"Rather than work with a typical decoration, as you often find in a carpet, we thought it would be interesting to lean on this subtle way of producing a patter, creating a relief with different pile lengths gently referencing Long’s furrows and paths", says Arianna of Studiopepe
As with most of their designs, Relevo is marked by an eclectic detail that plays with one’s perception of it — a compositional gesture that makes you look twice. While acknowledging that most living rooms and bedrooms often hold a particular set of elements and objects, they explain that they somehow wanted to work outside of the classic dimension. Their solution was to give the otherwise rectangular design a single rounded corner, following the visual language of the pattern.
"That corner, along with the option of four colors, allows one to play with different configurations - two carpets together that can create another shape. All to give the user more freedom in playing with different expressions."
