Erased Heritage… Carpets by Jan Kath

I doubt I will ever be able to spend a shitload of money on a carpet, but if the opportunity would ever arise, I’d get myself one by Jan Kath. His designs are unusual and a little bizarre sometimes, but that is exactly how I like it. “Erased Heritage”, his latest collection, shows traditional persian carpets with what at first sight appears to be a lot of wear-and-tear; only it isn’t real damage, it’s exactly how they were made. The collection is really food for thought, creating an interesting contrast between new and time-worn, erased and never-there-to-begin-with… It made me think of the cupboard I featured a while ago; new objects made to look warped and distorted. It’s a bit like acid washed jeans, but in design… and it has a nice look to it too! Do check the pictures out in full view to fully appreciate them…

About quantumphysica

My name is QuantumPhysica The Insane, but you can call me QP. I am insane, admitted to a mental hospital in Belgium, and waiting for a decent diagnosis at the moment. Once I was a physics student with goals in life and what more; now I'm simply the patient of Room 93. Ever wondered what life is like in the psychiatric ward? I'll tell you everything you ever wanted to know... I am... particularly twitchy of personality. But I also am genuinely interested in everything. There is nothing that doesn't interest me, really. Everything, from quantum computers to fashion and cars to traveling... I also give advice. On anything. No taboos whatsoever. And I make lists of things...
