The paths of Reuber Henning and Bless cross again: In 2016, the two Berlin-based labels had teamed up to create the Carpethammock, a suspended design, for the exhibition »Bless N° 56 Worker's Delight« at the Vitra Design Museum's Gallery.
The Carpethammock is now followed by the new rug Staircase, the result of another joint project: Based on an idea by Bless, Reuber Henning have turned a photo of a staircase into a design plate and ultimately, into a beautiful hand-knotted rug produced in Nepal, made from Tibetan wool and silk in 45 different shades of grey. With its 150 knots per square inch, this cosy piece of art is a very fine rendering of the motif.
For Staircase, Bless take up the idea of the trompe l'oeil, an illusionary painting technique that makes use of perspective to create an optical illusion of three-dimensionality, producing the impression of a larger space, diverting the gaze or even misleading the eye.
After Salone del Mobile.Milano, Colombian joie de vivre will continue to travel around the world: ames will be bringing Caribbean sounds to London, New York and Bogotá.
