Sara Badr Schmidt, visual artist and designer of custom mats, puts tennis in the spotlight with this Smash creation, a nod to lovers of playing on clay. Like a tennis court that defines play areas, Smash allows you to define a space.

Its ocher color anchors it in an earthly materiality while its white lines structure the whole. In order to obtain a clean and precise result for the drawing of the dotted line, Sara uses a particular technique of carving the fiber on the outline of the figures. To this methodical work of the form, is added a particular attention on the elaboration of the color in order to reproduce the tint and the aspect of the beaten earth. Smash blends into a ground, falsely creating the illusion. Its originality gives a playful dimension to the room in which it is located, it invites you to play on the representation of the world of tennis. Thanks to the creativity of Sara Badr Schmidt, the carpet becomes an object with infinite possibilities.

Anxious to produce pieces that can be preserved over time, Sara becomes aware of the formidable creative challenges of carpets when she discovers textile craftsmanship. A great way to create works for the home, with exceptional materials, capable of being transmitted over several generations. Swedish and Lebanese, she is influenced by her multicultural background and inspired by the different worlds she encounters. His textile project is part of the ambitious desire to push the boundaries between art and design a little further. Sara appropriates design through textiles and brings innovative and unique graphics to life. Through her artistic vision she transcends reality to pay homage to the living with a fearless and playful approach to forms. Sara's creations convey an art of living, a philosophy of existence that find echo in color, material and shapes.
