The Desert Trilogy

The Desert Trilogy is a series of five new rugs designed by Cold Picnic which will debut at OFFSITE.
Inspired by the films of Tunisian director Nacer Khemir, Cold Picnic’s newest rug collection features  powdery, vibrant colors, set against one another in varying pile heights, and pot dyed to order by artisans in India.
As in past work, Cold Picnic uses color and composition to seek a balance between nostalgic and modern perspectives.

The Desert Trilogy rugs continue this exploration, but, in a nod to Khemir's films, employ looming dreamlike imagery to acknowledge the tension inherent in integrating past and present.
