I’m a sucker for films about outer space. From Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey to the Ridley Scott’s Prometheus and Alien, and more recently – Gravity (to mention a but a few).
This beautiful “Spacecrafted” rug featured at May Design Series DX Freight exhibition, designed by Jan Kath for Front London would bring a cosmic touch to your front room.
Inspired by images of space from the Hubble telescope, the bespoke rug is hand-knotted using silk and wool. The impression of gas clouds, asteroid nebulae and depth is created with a palette of more than 60 colours altered knot-by-knot. With more than 150-200 knots per square inch, its a technical masterpiece in rug design and real collectors piece.
Where can I get one?
