ICI BYZANTIUM MUREX PATCHWORK COLLECTION
Inspired by Byzantine culture and art, BYZANTIUM MUREX patchwork carpet combines two different crafts and two different materials of two universal empires of the world history in a contemporary canvas: Byzantine mosaics & Ottoman carpets.
Rearticulation of Byzantine mosaics with aged but over-dyed Ottoman/Turkish carpets exposes a well balanced composition of contrasts & similarities. Expressive color palette of the vivid collection compiled from royal colors of Byzantine & Ottoman empires: ruby red, amethyst purple, emerald green, sapphire blue, onyx black, golden yellow, marble cream, chestnut brown. Colors of richness & majesty.
BYZANTIUM MUREX is a contemporary canvas blending harmoniously chosen colors of square patches used as magnified mosaic pixels. While stitching lines reminds grouting of mosaics, floral patterns of original carpets perfectly softens rigid geometry.
