During ZONAMACO cc-tapis participates in a site-specific installation in Casa Gilardi by Luis Barragán, with Atelier de Troupe by Studio 84
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
On the occasion of ZONAMACO MÉXICO 2023, Studio 84 brings cc-tapis, Atelier de Troupe and Casa Gilardi together, integrating design pieces with the existing composition of the house. A harmonious synthesis of regional and foreign influences where cc-tapis collections Euphorbia by Bethan Laura Wood, Le Tapis Nomade by Atelier De Troupe and Les Arcs by Charlotte Perriand merge with Atelier de Troupe’s new PEDREGAL furniture collection in an installation of contrast, color and volume.
Located in the San Miguel Chapultepec neighborhood of Mexico City, Casa Gilardi was Luis Barragán’s last residential project. Commissioned by Pancho Gilardi and advertising partner Martin Luque, initially Luis Barragán, who had already retired, declined to design the house. It was only after seeing the blooming Jacaranda tree on the property that changed his mind, becoming the centre of the architectural project.
The interaction of contemporary design elements with Barragán’s use of color and composition create a vibrant visual effect immersing visitors in a full contemplative experience, staying true to Barragán’s original intentions for the home. Guests are invited to explore both inside and outside of the residence, starting from the courtyard where they can discover the Euphorbia collection by British designer Bethan Laura Wood. A delicate triptych of rugs, born from the meditative act of observation and drawing, which engage in a conversation with both the vegetation of Casa Gilardi and the pigmented walls reflecting Barragan’s sensibility for the coexistence between nature and architecture.
ABOUT THE COLLECTIONS
EUPHORBIA COLLECTION BY BETHAN LAURA WOOD FOR CC-TAPIS, 2022
Designed by Bethan Laura Wood, Euphorbia is a collection of rugs inspired and developed from the designer’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.
LE TAPIS NOMADE COLLECTION BY ATELIER DE TROUPE FOR CC-TAPIS AND ATELIER DE TROUPE, 2021
Le Tapis Nomade is a rug born from the collaboration between cc-tapis and Atelier de Troupe which embodies different cultures, identities and cinematographic references.
A juxtaposition of the nomadic aesthetic of Berber carpets and the art direction of Michelangelo Antonioni’s 1975 film, The Passenger.
LES ARCS COLLECTION BY CHARLOTTE PERRIAND FOR CC-TAPIS, 2023
Launched on the occasion of Paris Design Week 2023, Les Arcs is a collection designed by French designer and architect Charlotte Perriand. 6 unpublished color studies originally conceived for a series of woven panneaux ouvrants have been brought to life for the first time as a collection of hand-knotted rugs crafted from 100% Himalayan wool by cc-tapis artisans in Nepal.
PEDREGAL COLLECTION BY ATELIER DE TROUPE
Atelier de Troupe finds inspiration in the modernist architecture of Mexico City for its 2023 collection PEDREGAL.
The collection borrows its name from Luis Barragan’s “Jardines del Pedregal de San Angel”, which translates to The Gardens of the Lava Fields, planned in a deserted area outside central Mexico City covered in dense lava from the Xitle volcano, which erupted thousands of years ago.
