The story of this rug dates back to my teen years.
At the time, I was interested in colour fixing techniques on fabric.
I started creating and selling silk scarves to the girls in my school – a cool way to make new attractive friends…
But then I moved on to study architecture and work with other materials and forgot all about it.
Until one day, on my first trip to Japan, while strolling in a Tokyo park, I saw a pond literally covered by some gigantic water lilies… so much bigger than the ones in Europe! I was in awe, and decided that I was going to design a rug inspired by those flowers. Something simple and vibrant, like the water underneath them, and in a sort of constant motion: the rug is designed into two modules that can be placed – and moved- anywhere on the floor.
