Acclaimed custom floor coverings firm for many of the world’s most prestigious brands, Creative Matters will showcase the Redoux Passager art installation at Paris Design Week from September 7 - 12, 2023.
Collaborating once again with the Parisian design studio LOMA to create an immersive activation, the installation follows the success of the Winter Garden exhibit featured at Paris Design Week 2022. The latest installation poetically continues the journey of water using a collection of sustainable materials such as silk, wool and wood, leading visitors through a calming oasis towards the Redoux Passager.
“We’re proud to have our presence at Paris Design Week continue this year, and we wanted to use this opportunity to expand on our Winter Garden concept, this time, highlighting water as the source of life,” says Ana Cunningham, vice president and partner at Creative Matters. “Partnering with studio LOMA again, the designers have created a space that harmonizes the creativity and craftsmanship of both brands.”
The design asks viewers to consider the precious nature of water relating to climatic distress, posing a reflection on the question of sustainability and the management of this natural resource through the ages.
The Redoux Passager can be found at 23, rue du Pont-aux-Choux 75003 Paris, and will be open from September 7 - 12 at Paris Design Week 2023.
Established in 1988, Creative Matters designs and creates hand-knotted rug collections and custom fair trade floor coverings for clients in more than 40 countries. It was the first North American company to commit to the Label STEP, an international non-profit association that seeks to promote fair trade in the handmade carpet industry, based on safe working conditions, fair wages, and sustainable, environmentally-friendly production.
With this commitment, Creative Matters pays close attention to the materials it uses to make its rugs, with a preference for regenerative, sustainable fibers. Consequently, Creative Matters has, for several years, been involved in solutions to reduce the use of water in the production of floor coverings.
