a new virtual experience

Gesture is a collective of 5 new rug projects exploring how the motion of hands and tools can quietly lead the creative process, conceiving entirely new aesthetic languages. From small domestic tasks to naive scrawling, each action is considered with a similar weight. A smear of frothy soap swiped across a windowpane is seen with the same wonder as paint splashed across canvas and the furtive child like scribbles of crayon on pristine walls could very well be the making of a masterpiece. Five designers — Patricia Urquiola, Sabine Marcelis, Philippe Malouin, Mae Engelgeer and Yuri Himuro – meditate on gesture’s meaning and investigate how the simple movement of hands and tools can lead their creative process.
