Los Angeles-based furniture brand Troop Workshop and brand of Milanese carpets cc-carpet have collaborated on a singular work of art, a geometric rug named The Nomadic Rug. Produced in Nepal, the new rug is inspired by the nomadic element of Berber rugs and the artistic direction of The passenger, a 1975 film by Michelangelo Antonioni. Like the traveling Berber people, the rug was designed to travel too – through time and place. A timeless design of geometric shapes and organic lines, Le Tapis Nomade has been designed for all interior spaces.
To photograph the carpet for its release, Atelier de Troupe and cc-tapis chose a specific location, the “Casa a tre cilindri”, a mid-century Milanese architectural icon designed by Bruno Mangiarotti and Angelo Morassutti. Other Atelier de Troupe pieces were filmed in situ next to the rug, including the iconic Coda lounge chair and the Shell vase from the latest Château collection.
