“For many years I had the idea to do something with traditional oriental carpets. I have an antique Persian carpet at my home, which I still find the best carpets to have. the idea behind the carpet was to build a bridge between the old and the new, east meets west. from this starting point, I looked at various ways to give a reinterpretation. I came up with the idea to stretch the carpet at a certain point. I found it’s very important where to start the stretching. On the traditional side I kept the fringes, ons the contemporary side I made a clear cut.”
