This is the first time that Numéro 111 have worked on a rug, They played with the material to create reliefs by working on the texture, thus sketching out a landscape inspired by images from Google Earth. The idea was to create a space within a space, an exterior in one's interior, with an idea of Travelling. The rug becomes a domestic landscape. Graphic in appearance, the monochrome tone offers up nuances of shade depending on the light and can be read either abstractly or figuratively.
Numéro111 is founded by 3 childhood friends: Sophie Françon, Jennifer Julien and Grégory Peyrache. They all studied in separate institutions and engaged in their individual apprenticeships before coming back together in 2010 to establish Numéro111. Together, they have a wide array of experiences and perspectives layed out on the table, which provides for their global dialogue-based approach. Without confining themselves to a single genre/approach in their design work, they are able to partake in a variety of projects including objects, furniture, architecture, interior design and scenography. The three individuals create a constructive discourse between themselves on form and material, allowing them to create and design beyond the ordinary and typical.
