British Designer Tom Dixon Lays London At Our Feet, With Ege

The Industrial Landscape Collection is a striking new collaboration from EGE and Tom Dixon, a collection of seven unique designs that mark Dixon’s first foray in designing such an extensive carpet collection.

Now available from RC+D exclusively in Australia, Industrial Landscape is Tom Dixon’s first ever carpet collection, produced with EGE. As a native Brit, Dixon evokes the gritty character of London, exploring the vivid images of London’s backdrop. From billowing clouds of industrial smoke, to glazed bricks, and deteriorating cobblestones, the collection reflects a raw and rough image of industrialisation.

Tom Dixon describes the collection as, “a series of patterns and textures that come naturally from the building process or the erosion process,” visible in London’s cityscape. The ever-present river Thames is a strong motif through the collection, as are the scuffed cobblestones and railway tracks.

He goes on to say, “Colour is a very powerful thing as a pattern, particularly when you use it in large expanses.”

The Industrial Landscape collection features predominantly earthy tones, greys, muted teals, and blues, with the option of multiple colour ways for each design. It is how these colours are used that makes the collection so striking, with their textures placing a piece of London right under our feet.

RC+D is excited to bring the Industrial Landscapes collection to Australia, fresh from its launch at Stockholm Furniture Fair.

Available both as broadloom and tiles, the collection allows for versatile customisation. There are eight standard qualities available for broadloom, and four standard qualities available for tiles.

In partnership with EGE, the Industrial Landscapes Collection carries patented Ecotrust felt backing and is comprised of regenerable ECONYL® yarns produced from fishing nets, making the carpets 100 per cent green. In addition to this, all EGE carpets are GECA certified.
