AFGHANISTAN AN ARTISTIC REVIVAL
Turquoise Mountain partnered with Wallpaper* Magazine and AfghanMade to showcase a new collection of handmade rugs from Afghanistan.
The exhibition, curated and designed by Wallpaper*, featured contemporary designs including works by Scholten & Baijings, Junpei Tamaki, Christophe Pillet and Fredrikson Stallard, all commissioned by Wallpaper* editors.
The exhibition featured contemporary pieces from eight rug companies: Christopher Farr, ABC Italia, Nodus, Nanimarquina, Dandelion, Ignacio Larrain Alfombras and Wool & Silk Rugs. Through expert training, AfghanMade Carpets in partnership with Turquoise Mountain have brought contemporary designs to Afghanistan, challenging local craftsmen to reproduce lines, shapes and concepts completely new to them.
