L'Arte tocca il Design, Alessandro Mendini ( 2013 )

Textures and materials meet and processing techniques overlap ; hand-knotted in India, the carpet has warp and weft in cotton and fleece in wool and silk, with the addition of the loop technique that creates a three-dimensional effect, a vibrating surface, both to touch and sight.

The Benares Carpet Collection by Alessandro Mendini presents a challenge to haute couture, materializing the concept of maximum characterization of the carpet. The collection was named to commemorate the ancient name of the city of Varanasi , the district in which there are the workshops where are produced most of the carpets by Artep Italia, including those designed by Alessandro Mendini.
