An ornate, stylized Dutch townhouse is the subject of Kiki van Eijk’s ‘Town House’ carpet for Nodus. After the success of her ‘Houses’ wallhangings developed for the Dutch Textile Museum, she was invited to create two carpets for the Italian label. The first one, titled Town House, will be shown during the Salone del Mobile 2013 in Milan. The second carpet will be launched later this year.

The carpet is one of a series of works by van Eijk to be shown during Milan Design Week. Also on display, at the Tuttobene show, will be the Floating Frames 2.0 high cabinet, part of a family of objects “that show only the skeleton of what they could be, yet representing a function in full state.” says van Eijk. “The objects exist between fiction and reality, they are ultra transparent and seem to float in space by almost getting absorbed by their surroundings. In this work the construction looks like tiny ink drawings. The big pieces are made out of anodized aluminum wire with added ceramic parts that determine a function.”

And at the Spazio Rossana Orlandi, the Textile Sketch chair and low table, part of a furniture collection that brings flat and mobile textile shapes to life in solid heavy metal. The series “capture[s] the delicate nature of fabrics: laser-cutting lace, 3D laser-cutting piping, welding and blow-torching fringe, coating gold and nickel thread, and even attempting to fluff-up a metal pillow!”
