"...the iconic design of steps covered in water by the lagoon..."


From a photo of a Venetian flight of stairs came the idea to reinterpret the iconic image of steps covered in water by the lagoon through the colors and materials of a rug, Giudecca which is part of the Acqua Alta Collection for Rubelli was created. The different tones of grey of the wool create the stone steps, marked by salt and the effects of time. The sea and the vibrations of the waves are transformed into a shimmering silk surface where tones of blue and green radiate together. Venice and its magical atmosphere are represented into a new contemporary vision through a rug completely knotted by hand in Nepal.
