Gabriele Chiave on the Role of Carpets at Maison&Objet!

Amsterdam 1st September 2015. We are proud to announce that on September 4th at 12 pm, Marcel Wanders’ Creative Director Gabriele Chiave will share his insight during a panel discussion at Maison&Objet in Paris. Joined by Asa Henzel and Lucy Upward, Chiave will be discussing the role of carpets in interior design and particularly highlight the process behind the groundbreaking and recently founded Moooi Carpets.

In all their richness and sumptuousness, carpets have always found extensive application and attention to detail in Marcel Wanders’ warm, playful and sensual interior universe. Debuted during Salone del Mobile 2015 in Milan, Marcel Wanders reached a remarkable milestone with the foundation of Moooi Carpets. The new printing technology can accurately represent the detail of the flowers in Dutch still-life bouquets or create dynamic kaleidoscopic patterns of Delft Blue, jewels and other custom designs. Moooi Carpets allow for amazing photo realistic images with a vivid sense of depth and rich levels of detail.

At the forefront of interior carpet design, Gabriele Chiave will discuss and answer questions on the significance of the craft, use, and industry of carpets today and provide a unique professional perspective. Together with the other panelists, this will be the foremost discussion on what textiles can offer designers in the future.



Are you a metal head? 

Do you remember antiques

Do you agree lace is lovely? 

Do you believe broken porcelain brings luck?  

Do you recognise this face

Are you fond of white

Believe it or not you're a light-weight

Sparkly like silver or shiny like gold

Do you like your gold shiny? 

Does glass always pass the light?
