WOMEN IN DESIGN AT ALSERKAL AVENUE
Venus Power, a sign of life, a Manifesto signed by Patricia Urquiola. Everyone, regardless of gender, carries with them a dimension of femininity. An energy to be embraced, listened to and accepted. Strong, powerful and joyful, the collection expresses a metaphor to make us think about the need to incorporate feminine attributes that coexist within all of us, “…if everyone – men and women – considered and embraced every aspect of themselves we could add more dimension and colour to the way we approach everyday life.” – Fabrizio Cantoni, CEO cc-tapis Black lines define the perimeter of floating shapes and identify the single letters that compose the phrase “We all come from Venus”. A mission statement that alludes to Graffiti Art, also applied in the collection’s hypnotic texture: a vortex of colour inspired by the intriguing atmosphere of Venus. Completely hand-knotted by Tibetan artisans, the decisive black lines of the design are hand-carved to gently rise in a soft and curved 3D form, which is repeated in the silhouette of the rugs, a tribute to feminine archetypes. The Venus Power collection is a group of 4 rugs: Weallcomefromvenus, Nuvola, Cirrus and Venus, all available in 3 different colour combinations: blue, pink and green. The Collection is presented as a project accompanied with a written essay by Anja Aronowsky Cronberg, editor and author.
