Partition ( 11,5 x 3,80 m.) is an assemblage of stair rugs selected in the stock of a nearby specialized manufacture. This Wilton weaving technique involves a dense woolen side and a usually non visible side of jute. Sewn together by an artisanal process, the whole surface becomes a mobile double side landscape with acoustic properties. The 90° shift, the softness and access to both sides brings a new dimension to the carpet material.
