Wedge has a unique pattern, inspired by wooden waste material turned into an indigo-colored floor that Hellgren exhibited at TENT London 2017. Geometric patterns have been a recurring item throughout her design and the Wedge carpet is not an exception. However, there is a subtle twist to the pattern, and if you look closely, you may find small spontaneous variations to the geometric pattern. Wedge carpet is hand-tufted in the sustainable Tencel fibre, available in two colours: indigo shades and neutrals.
"Finding a natural flow of light was essential when creating the wedge carpet. The radiance from the Tencel fibre enhances that in an optimal way."
- Marie-Louise Hellgren.
Tencel is a branded lyocell fibre of botanic origin, extracted from raw materials, like eucalyptus. The Tencel fibre has many advantages in terms of sustainability and Eco-friendly production, due to the closed loop system. The raw material wood stems from fast growing forest plantations without cultivating forestland suitable for agriculture. Also, water-consumption is 10 to 20 times lower than with cotton.
"We believe that taking action and contributing to a more sustainable environment is important for each company. We have worked with high quality carpets for many years and are very excited to add this new material to the collection. In the future we aim to work more frequently with Tencel in our carpet collection"
