The fifth company that will feature in COVER’s exciting FORZA TAPPETI: THE RUG REVOLUTION show in April in Milan is Stile BK!
Stile BK designer Behrouz Kolahi is first and foremost an artist and this attitude is a powerful component in all of the company’s work. Inspired by Renaissance portraiture and Virginia Woolf’s celebrated writings, Stile BK’s latest powerful collection Rinascimento. A Room of One’s Own illustrates how a rug can define an intimate space using the female image. From this series Scapigliata has the accompanying text: ‘Who shall measure the heat and violence of the poet’s heart when caught and tangled in a woman’s body?’
Inspired by Renaissance portraiture and Virginia Woolf’s celebrated collection of writings, Rinascimento. A Room of One’s Own is emblematic of how a rug can delimit an intimate space within the home using the female figure. Every portrait is inspired by a work by a celebrated Old Master such as Leonardo, Ghirlandaio and Botticelli and each rug has a tale to tell; they captivate, they beguile, they evoke memories and emotions and they forge a strong link between this style of painting and the history of fashion.
