Röd Studio : Assemblages

Based in Copenhagen (Denmark), the duo of designers Anne Louise Rasmussen and Maja Marie Halling amazes us with her experimental approach to textile design. Anthropomorphic and sculptural, their carpets break the codes with humor. Example with the Assemblies collection.

The story begins when Anne Louise and Maja Marie are still students in textile design at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Art, which they are forced to do a four-handed project in their last year. A winning collaboration since since, they have never left! Meaning "red" in Danish (for femininity and power), Röd Studio is a UFO in the contemporary landscape. Between design objects and works of art, their carpets reflect the humor and creativity of both women, but also their taste for travel.


Assemblées collection is no exception, it is in Marrakech that the pair has drawn inspiration. But if Majorelle blue, mohair and irregular contours refer us to the Moroccan aesthetic, the visual identity of these carpets is very specific to the studio. Associating the materials in forms sometimes abstract, sometimes figurative, the works of the collective "assemble" bright tones, unexpected volumes and multiple textures to create unique patterns.

"Of course, we also have our muses, like Picasso, and we draw inspiration from periods and artistic movements, such as constructivism, cubism or the Bauhaus. " Anne Louise Rasmussen and Maja Marie Halling, designers

Organized into a triptych, the series refers to sculptor composition processes. First, there is a model drawn on paper using colored markers, or cut out of a cardboard box. Then comes the setting in volume, where each of the independent elements are associated, finally creating a harmonious and coherent result.

A breath of fresh air that combines many disciplines between them.
