More than a zoo is a bit like Noah’s ark where large numbers of animals are unexpectedly come together….
Moret embraces the idea of Aldo cibic of reflecting on the chain of life, with its vegetable, animal and human realms. The movement inside each individual realm construct a story, reflecting his and our desire to present a narrative made up of relations glorifying the creation of our planet. In this new collection Moret and Aldo Cibic have stressed the feel of the rugs and a possible three dimensional result, making these rugs more of a sculpture than a flat surface to be walked on. Decorations, once patterns from ancient traditions, have become animals conjuring up Noah’s Ark. Each symbol and character conveys its own story open to various possible imaginings.
In Party Zoo the various combinations of linen and Eleganza yarn create high and low relief effects as well as reflections of a special light. These unexpected effects endow the carpets with colours and shades that change according to the onlooker’s position.
