Neri & Hu takes inspiration from the tile patterns of Shanghai streets, a place where life literally happens. The name of the collection corresponds to Jie Áx, the Chinese character that embodies the essence of a city: the constant movement, dynamism and frenetic activity. The character Jie is made up of a radical and a phonetic character. The ancient ideograms of the Chinese Jie character depicts on one side the street as an intersection, evoking life at the crossroads, while the center portion of the character is made up of two earthcharacters whose ideogram shows a clay on potter’s wheel; a connection to the ceramic colors used by Neri & Hu in the series, according to Neri & Hu. The result is an eclectic hand-tufted rug presenting different pile heights and finishes, made of 100% New wool.
