The Magic Marker Carpets started off as felt tip pen-drawings.
When we re-discovered the color surprises of magic markers, we knew that we were on to something. Primitive hand-drawn weaves seem to go well with the advanced technique of digital printing on carpets.
Synthetic polyamide rugs are ideal for heavy traffic contract spaces, while wool is more suitable for residential.
For a crisper and more vivid print, polyamide is advised, while a softer and more authentic effect is created with wool.
Bertjan Pot is a designer, probably best known for his Random Light (1999).The light started as a material experiment, which is basically the start of each product created by Studio Bertjan Pot.The outcome is usually an interior product showing a fascination for techniques, structures, patterns and colours. Most experiments start quite impulsively, triggered by a certain curiosity for how things would function or how something would look. From there Bertjan takes on challenges with manufacturers to explore possibilities, pushing boundaries bit by bit.The reward for each challenge is a new one. Studio Bertjan Pot works with manufacturers such as Arco, Established & Sons, Feld, Gelderland, Montis, Moooi and Richard Lampert.
