La Manufacture Cogolin introduced the Four Corners collection designed by Jason Miller at WantedDesign Brooklyn, an event showcasing American and International design from May 17th – 23rd 2017 in New York. Founded in 2011 in NYC by Odile Hainaut and Claire Pijoulat, WantedDesign is a platform dedicated to promoting American design and fostering the international creative community. The WantedDesign initiative consists of various events and partnerships, including the “Transatlantic Creative Exchange”, aiming to connect American designers with typical French savoir-faire.
Hailing from Connecticut, Jason Miller, who is now based in Brooklyn, built up his reputation thanks to his arty designs – lamps, ceramics, chandeliers, mirrors, and furniture pieces – combining expert workmanship with conceptual inspiration. A stylistic gap that wasn’t unfamiliar to La Manufacture Cogolin, a company that is just as comfortable in the field of decorative arts as it is in contemporary design.
Drawing inspiration from the geometric spirit and colors of Navajo blankets, the five-rug series designed by Jason Miller, (Roswell, Moab, Sedona, Flagstaff, and Carson), features a unique variation on the stripe theme, in a new addition to the French rug manufacturer’s catalogue. “I wanted to propose a design that was both bold and simple,” the designer says. The rugs are also available in limited edition in a hand-woven technique.
