1. 01 odd matter

    ODD MATTER is a design studio driven by curiosity for all the strange and wonderful. Researching, probing, creating and exploring our world’s past, present and future through its materials, processes and concept. The studio believes that by working with existing processes and notions, researching these from a different more naive perspective a different kind of products can be created. Unique and specific to the place they originate from.


    Nostalgia and experimentation lead the creative process responsible for the new Tonnara Car Park collection by Dutch based studio Odd Matter.  The ephemeral nature of sand became the starting point to a collection where transient movement and marks become permanently engrained in the surface of a hand-knotted rug. “The collection tries to capture a fragment of the moments that no one came to see but for a short period was a part of.” – in their own words, Els and Giorgi describe the nostalgia that started the process.

    Euphorbia sipolisii f. crestata
    Every plant has a unique growing habit, creating wildly different formations like living calligraphy. Bethan fell in love with their forms, studying them as they slowly grew, rotating them each time to get a different point of view. The meditative act of observation and drawing became a cathartic exercise during the strange and peculiar times that was lockdown.
    Bethan Laura Wood obtained a MA in Design Products at the Royal College of Art, under the tuition of Jurgen Bey and Martino Gamper. Since graduating in 2009, Bethan has built a multidisciplinary practice characterized by material investigation, artisan collaboration, and a passion for colour and detail. Bethan enjoys exploring the relationships we make with objects in our everyday lives, and questions how they can become cultural conduits. She is interested in critical approaches to achieving sustainability in a mass consumption, production-driven context.


    A new collection inspired and developed from Bethan’s ink drawings, made in confinement during lockdown. Bethan decided to take the opportunity to draw every couple of days, sketching her Euphorbia Sipolisii f. Crestata succulents, fascinated by their curls.

    cc-tapis artisans interpreted the original drawings of Bethan with black wool whilst the natural tones of the undyed pile gently and delicately cover the design, purposefully knotted with a longer yarn. A contrast which respects and echos the marks of the ink pen Bethan used.

    Tempore, Latin term denoting a temporary or provisional period. The starting point for the creative process of a collection of hand-knotted rugs made of Himalayan wool evoking a temporarily interval of time in which the anatomy of each piece emerges and dissolves.
    Trained between the Radical Design and Milan’s architecture, grown up through multiple and heterogeneous experiences and professional exchanges in Rotterdam and Paris, Duccio approaches the Design from a variety of directions.

    Trained be In his projects for Galleries, fashion brands and private commissions of bespoke furniture, he maintains a research-storytelling approach where every work stands as a momentary reflection in an endless research on structures, materials, processes, which he carries on in his atelier and studio in Florence.


    Analyzing the relationship between natural and artificial, the Italian designer Duccio Maria Gambi evoked the process of disintegration and re-appropriation that nature constantly operates on the space designed and lived by man. A relationship between movement and stillness, between growth and decay passing through different messages and consistencies living in a common permanent unit.

    Black lines define the perimeter of floating shapes and identify the single letters that compose the phrase “We all come from Venus”.

    Patricia Urquiola continues her research in color and form for the new Pipeline rug for cc-tapis.


    Exploring the graphic language of Patricia Urquiola, Pipeline continues her exploration into the evolution of color. Traditional artisans transform Urquiola’s chromatic evolutions into a hand-knotted rug. A series of connected tubes merge from the surface and create a labyrinth of digital shades whose volume gives a sense of depth to the object. Multiple chromatic evolutions that develop through circular movements, overlapping on multiple levels of Himalayan wool, focusing the gaze on the space outlined by the tubes.

    Inspired by the feeling, aesthetics and graphic alignment of the traditional Japanese Tatami flooring, Ceremony invites you to take a seat, to ground yourself and to experience the materials under you, sharing a moment together. 
    Textile design has always been at the heart of Dutch designer Mae Engelgeer’s work, from her high school days to her studies at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute and Sandberg Instituut. Since opening her own studio in 2013, she has nurtured her curiosity for the craft, experimenting within the existing boundaries of textile production to elevate old techniques to a modern stage.

    Mae Engelgeer’s work embraces subtle color palettes, patterns and linear elements. Complex compositions merge with perfection to establish harmony. Creative explorations into the contrasting of materials and textures result in works that luxurious in their tactility and dimensionality.


    Designed by textile designer Mae Engelgeer, the collection is characterized by two rugs which can connect with each other in multiple customizable compositions. Rectangular shapes which evoke different moments of the day, from daytime to moonlight, become the bed of a separate circular rug called “Focus”. “Available in different color variations, Focus can be easily moved on the surface of the rectangular rug, “marking a spot where you can sit and renew your focus, meditate, set your mind free or enjoy some tea”, explains Mae Engelgeer.
