Rich in texture and exquisitely designed, Bell & Chime is a stunning modernist carpet which has been created in collaboration with St Ives based abstract Artist Arthur Lanyon.
"I hope the paintings allow multiple readings. Each person can link the dots they see and find something that is their own. Simplified illusions for the mind to play with, like searching for something you haven't seen yet but feel you might know. Figure-like shapes, embodied forms, abstract totems may be revealed but for me literal illusion stifles that search and gives things too much precision and prominence, it makes a top and a bottom and closes the door."
Produced in a 150 knot quality and made up of 46 colours, conveying a sense of vibrant movement and playfulness. "If you are making noise, working with and against something at the same time, there is always going to be an energy there".
Strictly limited to a total of 15 pieces, this exquisite carpet is a true masterpiece of design, the definition of ‘Your Floor Is The Canvas’.
