c+c tapis Collection by Objects of Common Interest

Objects of Common Interest, a design studio led by Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis, draws inspiration from the observation of natural landscapes and materials for the c+c tapis collection, three innovative designs that also use the very complex Jacquard weaving technique to create a fascinating Moiré effect.

The most overt influence here is the natural grains and fibers of woods like maple and cherry: ‘We’ve aimed to capture the visual illusions naturally present in the grain and fibers of wood, translating them into patterns similar to traditional Moiré textiles.”

The three rugs – Zig-Zag, Quadratic, and Splash – are whimsical, geometric designs that offer a fascinating counterpart to the natural phenomena captured in the weave.

The patterns also change with the character of the light, creating even more interplay between the present and the past—juxtaposing a contemporary aesthetic with artisanal craftsmanship.

The rugs are a 70% wool/30% tencel blend. They’re made by hand in Nepal.
