Chiccham Rugs

Hemispheres — Balmer Hählen

For this first collaboration between Chic Cham and Balmer Hählen, two rugs inspired by the stars in which geometric shapes have been developed.
Intrigued, even passionate about the planets, they wish to transmit through these two carpets a timeless idea of escape in a minimalist universe.

Hemispheres highlights the duality and contrasts of colours. The shapes reveal two spheres that meet through their centers, attracted like two magnets.
These are divided into four parts which directly refer to the name of the carpet.
The play between white and black leads to a reflection between background and form, the whole composition reveals a symmetrical balance.

Founded by Priscilla Balmer and Yvo Hählen, the Balmer Hählen studio is located in the heart of Lausanne since 2013. Since its creation, the studio has been involved in collaborations, notably with designers, stylists and paper finishers. This graphic exploration allows the studio to develop on different types of printed, digital or textile media. Their work is regularly exhibited in Switzerland and abroad, notably in several international poster competitions in China, Russia, Scotland and Japan, where Balmer Hählen received the Tokyo Type Directors Club Annual Awards in 2018.
