Jim Lambie and Dovecot Studios: Soft Machine

In collaboration with Scottish artist Jim Lambie, Dovecot created a rug that mimics a 3D object.

Lambie is well known for his use of space and colour, and the design for this rug is inspired by the artist’s wall-mounted metal sculptures which are made of layered sheets of aluminium peeled back to reveal a myriad of colours. Dovecot tufters Dennis Reinmüller and Kristi Vana carved into the tufted rug with precision to create this striking 3D effect.
