The Omega rug reproduces a striking design by the iconic Bloomsbury-based graphic workshop of the early 1900s, using a new craft of woven fibres made from recycled plastic bottles.
The Omega Workshops was a group of artists, including Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant, who were ahead of their time and set a fashion for abstract and geometric patterns. The original design, Amenophis, has been linked to the workshop’s founder, the British designer and painter Roger Fry.
Original inspiration: Amenophis furnishing fabric, Roger Fry (1866–1934), Omega Workshops, England, made in Maromme, France, 1913
