Get ready to ride! Forza Tappeti: The Rug Revolution 2013
Go on. Lean deep into the hairpin curve. Forza Tappeti Rug Revolution 2013 at the Salone Internazionale Del Mobile, Milan will be an exhilarating ride. Celebrating its second successive year at the Salone, Forza Tappeti is a COVER magazine exhibition presenting the best in contemporary hand made design carpets. COVER are delighted to present Forza Tappeti as part of designjunction’s Edit exhibition.
The venue is La Pelota, on the via Palermo in Milan’s famous Brera-Garibaldi artist quarteriere, aka the Brera Design District. Before the massive venue was renovated and transformed to host events, La Pelota was the place to watch the riotous and rapid game of pelota. Promoted in North America (and elsewhere) as Jai alai, the small rubber game ball can reach speeds of 300 km per hour. Expect Forza Tappeti to deliver similar speed, expertise, exhilaration, players, audience and more.
Edit’s dates are 9-14 April 2013, and includes highlights from designjunction’s September 2012 London Design Week show. And now for the first time it will also include Forza Tappeti. Just two months to go. Get ready to ride. DJ
