For HENZEL STUDIO, Jack Pierson has created three different carpets. The first was released in 2013, and is adapted from one of his automatic drawings, where the drawing strokes have been accentuated though lower pile heights. To expand the ongoing collaboration with Pierson, two additional designs launched in 2018. Here, Pierson re-appropriated pieces from his abstract sculpture series. The first one (featured piece), based on ABSTRACT #12 (2008) is a freeform design with a surface treatment that replicates a worn vintage feel though variable material compositions of wool and silk. For the second design, Pierson re-appropriated a component of his sculpture GOIN HOME (2011). The connected shapes creates free-form carpet with variable pile heights for dimension and enhanced use of silk to increase contrast.
