During Salone del Mobile in Milan, Moooi has introduced Moooi Carpets, a brand new company that offers a large collection of highly customizable carpets. The Dutch company aims to reinvent the carpet by introducing a new technology that generates extremely high definition prints, which can result in photo realistic flooring solutions.
The collection introduces 48 eccentric and playful carpets designed by renowned names of the design, fashion and visual arts fields such as Bas Kosters, Bertjan Pot, Broersen en Lukács, Edward van Vliet, Front, Jurgen Bey, Klaus Haapaniemi, Maison Christian Lacroix, Marcel Wanders, Marian Bantjes, Neri&Hu, Ross Lovegrove, Sonya Pletes and Studio Job.
Next to these printed carpets, Moooi Carpets presents also 5 ‘jacquard’ woven carpets by Marcel Wanders, which, with sophisticated and refined details, reproduce flat woven designs of 3D images that appear to be literally carved into the carpets.
Each carpet reveals the designer’s unique imagination, from photo realistic creations of nature, to abstract ‘sketched art’. All carpets combine an endless mix of colours thanks to the groundbreaking high definition Chromojet printer.
The collection introduces three different families: the Signature, Moooi Works and Your Own Design. Each family group offers a number of different solutions to meet the many demands of projects and individual taste.
Design your own carpet, retouch a Moooi Works carpet with 648 different colours or buy your favourite Signature carpet print. Moooi Carpets has it all. It’s the reinvention of the carpet!
– Casper Vissers – Moooi’s CEO
Your Own Design offers the tools to develop and produce a tailor made carpet design. The tool allows you to become your own designer, yet still have the expertise and knowledge of Moooi Carpets’ team.
The new technology opens up a whole new world of possibilities for the carpet world, creating truly unique and customized solutions.
