Federica Tondato has been passionate about weaving techniques from a young age and studied architecture between London and New York. For her, a rug ‘needs to be architecture’. More than decorating a surface, her creations rebuild, open, enlarge and compliment a space. The graphic poetry of her rugs are displayed by the exquisite curves of the embroidery, with its endless permutations, in perfect balance with the shapes. Symbols and motifs give meaning to her work and along with the interplay of lines, complement the tactile relief and seductive textures of her rugs.
