THE COLLECTION LAUNCH OF ZIGZIGZAG
September 12, 2019 we celebrated the collection launch of ZigZigZag Designed by co-founders of MADAM CHAIR, Bita & Chinmaya at Mehraban.
This collection of handmade area rugs is an adaptation of Chinmaya's patterned architectural line drawings. The set of drawings used in the design of the Zig Zig Zag Collection explores the idea of movement in a static space. The lines and strokes used to define each piece are reminiscent of ocean waves. The sequence of strokes and the repetition of diagonal lines in an endless series of permutations and combinations shape and layer each rug.
Bita's suggestion to add texture and further enhance the pattern in how it defines the outline of each rug reinforces the idea of the edge condition; similar to an ever changing and evolving beach shoreline. The uniquely shaped rug then takes on a new non-traditional form.
Each rug in this series is therefore named after a beach that further signifies its color, shape, form and texture.
