FORMAFANSMA FOR CC-TAPIS
cc-tapis rugs are completely hand-knotted by expert Tibetan artisans in Nepal. A strong respect for the materials and for the culture of this ancient craft is reflected in the company’s eco-friendly approach to every step of the production, ranging from the hand-spinning of the softest Himalayan wool to the use of purified rainwater for the washing of the final products, making each one of cc-tapis rugs unique.
Formafantasma is a research-based design studio investigating the ecological, historical, political and social forces shaping the discipline of design today. Since founding the studio in 2009, Italians Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin have championed the need for value – laden advocacy merged with holistic design thinking.
The Telegram collection was Formafantasma's way of including the maker's of the rug in the creative process. "we wanted to remove the veil between us and the makers," says Formafantasma's Simone Farresin and Andrea Trimarchi. "It's the beginning of a dialogue, instead of merely a finished product."
