Winning Carpet Seen As A Jewel
THE latest carpet collection from MILLIKEN USA design studio, Dissemblage won the Silver Best of NeoCon in the broadloom category this year.
Created primarily for the America market by jewellery designer, Cresta Bledsoe, Dissemblage is described as giving the optical illusion of an interactive floor plane that unveils bold geometric patterns as viewers move throughout a space.
Pattern is reportedly revealed as people move around the interactive woven metallic design, which reads as a solid ground except in the area in which you stand.
Another NeoCon launch, the Lume e Lustro collection, received a HiP Award for Design Solution Underfoot, organised by Interior Design magazine. Lume e Lustro is said to present a tactile dimensional world with a 2-D and 3-D juxtaposition that explores rich texture and flat graphics.
Designed by Cresta Bledsoe in collaboration with Dr Scott Parry, Milliken’s in-house print research scientist, an optical mise-en-scène is created through a surface play of reflected light, revealing volume and revealing texture.
