By stitching rope together to make a large flat carpet, designer Bertjan Pot accidentally found out that it was making curved samples instead of flat ones. Instead of making that flat carpet, Pot began creating this series of quirky and colorful masks.
Although seemingly these masks tell stories, this again started out as a material experiment. I wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together I could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy. When I was about to give up on the carpet, Vladi came up with the idea of shaping the rope into masks. The possibilities are endless, I’m meeting new faces every day.
