HoT - History of Things


HoT – History of Things
When we love something, we want to know the story behind it… as told by the designer herself : Federica Tondato

Life is strange: I always thought I would become an architect and work with volumes and tridimensional spaces… but then something happened, and now I’m in the… two-dimensional business of designing rugs!


I did become an architect though, but after graduating I did not look for a job right away as I wanted to explore the arts, and I started making videos. One day a friend asked me if I wanted to film a documentary about the Tibetan refugees in the Indian city of Dharamshala. I stayed there 5 weeks that turned out to be a life changing experience.


During that time I started making some drawings of abstract patterns and went to meet many skilled artisans in the region, weavers and embroiderers, and ordered some samples. I did not know exactly what to do with that but I brought the samples back and showed them to a friend. She loved them and warmly insisted that I pursue the project. I did: those first samples were the basis for the first rugs I designed. Now, more than twenty years later, I just love the idea that a rug – a flat object with two dimensions only – can alter the volume of a room.


The architect inside me is very happy.
