Designer Rugs continues their successful collaboration with Australian Fashion Designer Akira Isogawa with a new range of breathtaking designs in this third collaboration. In this collaboration – named HIRAMEKI, meaning ‘Inspiration’ – Akira’s striking creations reference his current catwalk collections.
This third collection sees the designs become more ornate and internationally inspired than his preceding collections, Akira’s vision for Hirameki’s designs include elaborate textiles and new methods of rendering his designs, largely came from fabrics found during his travels.
The innovation and beauty demonstrated in his previous Designer Rug collections has been amplified with the introduction of bamboo as a renewable material making them more durable, resilient and environmentally sustainable.
Ayame and Kiku were the culmination of integrating silk block kimono fabric designs with traditional Japanese floral motifs of Iris and Chrysanthemums. Shibori, meaning twist, is a unique tie-dye textile, originating from Japan, featuring a floral and wave motif. Batik is exquisite yet playful, based on Bali’s traditional water resistance dying technique, whereby wax is used to hand paint on the cloth before it is dyed.
Every rug in the collection has been meticulously hand made to the standard size of 200×300 cm with two rugs in a standard size of 250cm diameter. But they can be custom coloured and sized to suit any interior space, whether commercial or residential.
The Akira rug collection can be found in high-end residences globally and have been commissioned for luxury commercial spaces including the newly opened The Darling Hotel, Star Casino, Sydney.
The collection is available now exclusively from Designer Rugs showrooms with the collection priced from $4950.00. For your nearest stockist, visit their website www.designerrugs.com.au or call 1300 802 561.
