WATCH: Global architecture and design highlights, including Patricia Urquiola’s Venus Power collection of rugs for cc-tapis.

Making its debut during this year’s Milan Design Week, Venus Power is a collection of rugs by Patricia Urquiola created for Italian design company cc-tapis. The collaboration between designer and maker surveys the idea that all people – regardless of gender – carry a level of femininity within them, and encourages it to be embraced, listened to and accepted.

Expressed through the metaphor “We all come from Venus”, the message conveyed by Venus Power is equal parts strong, powerful and joyous, says Fabrizio Cantoni, CEO of cc-tapis. “If everyone – men and women – considered and embraced every aspect of themselves, we could add more dimension and colour to the way we approach everyday life.”

This collection by Patricia, the latest in a long line of collaborations with cc-tapis, features a group of four hypnotically textured cloud-like rugs. From largest to smallest, they are titled ‘Weallcomefromvenus’ (220 x 323cm), ‘Venus’ (200 x 342cm), ‘Cirrus’ (240 x 260cm) and ‘Nuvola’ (135 x 110cm). 

Each rug is available in three different colours: blue, pink and green, where the marble effect of each colourway is described by the cc-tapis team as “a vortex of colour inspired by the intriguing atmosphere of Venus”.

Heavy black marking outlines the perimeter of the rugs’ floaty shapes and, on the largest rug, defines the single letters that compose the phrase “We all come from Venus” – a mission statement that adopts a lettering technique often seen in graffiti art. Further words are provided by editor and author Anja Aronowsky Cronberg, who has prepared an essay to accompany the collection. 

Completely hand-knotted by Tibetan artisans, the decisive black lines of the designs are hand-carved to gently rise in a soft and curved three-dimensional form, which is repeated in the silhouette of the rugs; “a tribute to feminine archetypes,” says the cc-tapis team. 

Venus Power by Patricia Urquiola joins works by Muller Van Severen and Edoardo Piermattei at the cc-tapis showroom in Milan, and at supersalone, until September 10.
