TSAR carpets has just released her latest one: the Forma collection. With 25 strong, energetic patterns, the series of conceptual and hand-tufted floor coverings blurs the line between applied design and fine arts. With textures, fiber combinations, new layering techniques and seamless color gradients, Forma is a collection full of playful optimism.
Forma is TSAR Carpets’ largest collection to date and was created over the past year during the design team’s individual daily neighborhood walks. “The goal was to create designs that exemplify and embody the beginning of a new beginning,” says Teresa Ceberek, TSAR Carpets Design Manager. “The word ‘forma’ is a playful allusion to the imaginative and uplifting shapes in each of the carpet patterns as well as the abstract silhouettes of the carpets themselves.”
Forma is the first time TSAR has used nifty fading techniques to create new gradients, as well as the first time ribbon yarn is used as a material to create sculptural carpet dimensions. The company owns and controls the entire manufacturing process.
“Given the success and popularity of our previous texture collections, including Saltwater and Lagoon, the team experimented with new construction and fade techniques to produce unprecedented textures, patterns and fiber combinations that push the boundaries of virtuoso hand-tufted carpet making. “Says Ceberek.
Each hard-wearing Forma rug is hand-tufted from 100% New Zealand wool, undyed wool, Tencel, ribbon yarn and Lurex, a light-reflecting yarn with metallic properties.
