An “Arizona Land Carpet”, designed by Florian Pucher,


An “Arizona Land Carpet”, designed by Florian Pucher, - Design

2007/2014, manufactured by Kingtop, China, hand-tufted New Zealand wool, the label signed and inscribed: Arizona 01/01, 320 x 180 cm. (DRAX)

A unique specimen from the “Land Carpets” series, which has been developed since 2007, with each carpet featuring different motifs based on aerial views of regions in the USA, Asia, Europe, and Africa.

“Arizona” is a unique piece of the “Land Carpet” rug series and represents one of the most challenging environments for industrialised large-scale farming operations. The rug is based on an aerial image of the dry Arizonian planes where large patches of fields are tucked between mountain ridges and dry desert planes. The regular grid lines are broken up by round fields and odd roads and property boundaries. While the general colour tone of the rug is comprised by typical browns, ochre, and pinkish colours, the highly contrasting fields are rendered in various greens, all held together by a dark road pattern. Based on satellite images and aerial photographs, each “LAND CARPET” is a piece of nature captured to be touched. As each country deals with landscape and farming in a different way, “LAND CARPET” comes in various designs, each of them representing a different continent, country, or region. The stylised fields are of different height and let the carpet appear like a miniaturised landscape.
