Fabrica Features 2nd Edition
This collection is a collaboration between GUR and Fabrica Features curated by Sam Baron.
Fabrica draws three dimensional stories in handwoven rugs, taking a step forward into bold shapes and naive sketches. Each rug represents what goes through the minds of this team of young international designers, taking inspiration from their cultural background and mirroring their diverse creative skills: from product to interactive design, from graphic design to illustration.
