Relevo is a soft rug with a distinctly sculptural quality. Its striking graphic pattern is produced by trimming the tufted wool in different levels, thereby creating an eye-catching shadowplay that gives a sense of being two-tone rather than monochrome. The rug’s single rounded corner gives it a unique character, a dynamic expression in any setting.
STUDIOPEPE: The Relevo rug came to be as it often does; on the drawing board with paper and pencil. We like to create a whole story around a project, this time with a rug that could be a sculpture in its own right, virtually changing the perception of a room. Relevo’s swooping lines were inspired by land art and its sometimes furrowed, hypnotic paths in the soil. Relevo means relief in Latin, emblematic of the rug’s geometric pattern, made by trimming the hand tufted rug in levels and thereby creating a subtle relief effect.
