Multidisciplinary artist and designer Taline Temizian presents her project KALEIDORUG ™, concept rugs designed and engineered in formulas that makes them possible to be infinitely arranged in any space. The concept is to create modular rugs like giant letters that interchange and come apart, influenced by the Swiss typeface Moonbase Alpha by Cornel Windlin.
At the heart of the project is the study of systems and connections reflecting the artists interest in geometry, science, maths and coding. Taline collaborated with a software engineer and product designers to create the rugs using architectural software that use precision and cutting-edge design functions. The rugs are made up of different configurations in different sizes and scales. Each of these configurations have components that work together and perfectly interchange.
Using only the finest grade ethical wool as well as bamboo mixed with silk, the majority of the rugs are hand-tufted in Scotland. Customers can choose from the limited edition range of designs featured online, or the bespoke rug design service. Taline Temizian developed her concept in her solo-exhibition “Systems & Networks” at Sketch in 2016 and her solo show “Networking Serendipities” at Paul Smith, London in April 2019.
Taline Temizian, multidisciplinary artist and designer said: “I imagined these modular structures to be connected with a system, they are design registered innovative shapes that originate from Swiss typography as giant letters, hence making them into a language (system of signification), these objects become floor sculptures yet being extremely functional and flexible for any interior space. I worked with product and software designers to accomplish these concepts into physical and commercial luxury products that follow strict technical methods and are refined through software and product design rules.”
