Linus Dean’s Designer Rugs-Typographically Inspired, Traditionally Hand Loomed
Sydney, Australia -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/05/2012 -- AGDA award winning Sydney based graphic designer Linus Dean has expanded his artistic repertoire through the launch of his introductory line of designer rugs. Linus Dean’s modern rugs are typographically inspired and traditionally hand loomed in the nation of Nepal.
Linus Dean is traditionally known for his type-driven, bold, yet minimal design sense. Following 12 successful years as a graphic designer, Dean has traded his love of print mediums for something a bit more three dimensional; exquisite hand loomed rugs. His expansion into home interiors marks an important step along his journey to continually evolve as a designer.
Once Dean had composed designs for his modern rugs, he needed to choose the production technique in which to bring them to life. After much research and international travel, he chose the nation of Nepal which has deep ties to neighboring Tibet and their coveted rug making processes, to produce his hand loomed designs. The Tibetan traditional of rug making dates back thousands of years. While rugs are still made in Tibet today, nations such as Nepal have adopted the Tibetan craft, revitalizing this age-old, highly sought after technique.
Tibetan rugs are hand loomed using yarns colored with vegetable dyes.The final products can be characterized as thick, dense, and full of vibrant, rich colors.Dean describes his designs as “playful yet poised, sophisticated without being stuffy, avant-gardeminus the arrogance.” Dean’s one-of-a-kind designer rugs are sure to transform any space.
