This is crafty: what looks like a carpet is actually a series of hand-made concrete tiles. The straight and circular lines create a single pattern, variable in colours but not in definition. The design is rooted in the oriental Zen philosophy, which longs to capture the sense of the space-time relationship in tangible, complete signs. It is a new abstract alphabet of decoration that elaborates unprecedented visual references, full of familiar allusions and meanings. The Zenen cement tiles, part of the Walkpaper Collection, lend themselves to spread natural interpretations intended to define places with a new atmosphere.
