KARESANSUI RUGS BY MATTEO CIBIC FOR SCARLET SPLENDOUR
The “Karesansui” rug collection by Matteo Cibic for Scarlet Splendour, available exclusively in the US through kinder MODERN, speaks to Japanese zen and rock gardens, playfully and thoughtfully bringing the outdoors in. Each rug is made from premium New Zealand wool, meticulously hand-tufted and trimmed in India by skilled craftsmen. Matteo Cibic is an Italian product designer and creative problem solver who is inspired by expert craftsmen, unique materials, and experimental production techniques. Karesansui, or dry landscape gardens, are an intrinsic part of Japanese culture.
Scarlet Splendour is a luxury design company headed by siblings Ashish Bajoria and Suman Kanodia. Their debut collection showcased furniture and lighting designed by the prolific Matteo Cibic at the Spazio Rossana Orlandi during the Saloni di Mobile 2015 in Milan.
