The rug was created by Uruguayan designer Antonio Carrau for our Alexa rugs collection and was handcrafted using 100% pure virgin wool yarns.
“Número 5” is a composition created with counter blocks and remains of collages. Many times I resort to the collage as a technique to sketch or even design as it gives me the possibility of trying different things and going back when the result is not the one I wanted. Although I could make a design like this in a computer, I not only think the result is fresher in this way and the process more fluid, but also believe that the analogous process brings about new things that are exclusive of this manual work”.
Antonio Carrau is Uruguayan and was born in 1988. At present he lives in Montevideo. He studied graphic design but was always attracted by plastic arts. He forms part of Atolón de Mororoa design firm. He is a curious and self-taught person who is interested in experimenting and exploring different forms of expression.
