From a photo of a Venetian flight of stairs came the idea to reinterpret the iconic image of steps covered in water by the lagoon through the colours and materials of a rug, Giudecca which is part of the Acqua Alta Collection for Rubelli was created. The different tones of grey of the wool create the stone steps, marked by salt and the effects of time. The sea and the vibrations of the waves are transformed into a shimmering silk surface where tones of blue and green radiate together. Venice and its magical atmosphere are represented into a new contemporary vision through a rug completely knotted by hand in Nepal.

The Maker /
Born in France, designed in Milan, and produced in Nepal, cc-tapis offers beautiful hand-crafted rugs from some of the world’s leading artists and designers. Each cc-tapis rug tells a story of tradition, quality and contemporary design. At the centre of these stories is a traditional production process where a group of Tibetan artisans work by hand, refining natural materials, passing down artisanal know-how from generation to generation.
The Designer /
Giorgia Zanellato and Daniele Bortotto studied in Venice at IUAV but only met in Lausanne, Switzerland, where they both studied at ECAL. Their first collaboration was the Acqua Alta Collection, launched at the Salone Satellite in Milan in 2013. The project stood-out right away, starting a research project which continues even today.
