TORONTO, Canada -- Creative Matters, a custom floor and wallcoverings source for designers and architects, will present its interactive Art Day workshops for rug design enthusiasts at Domotex in Hannover, Germany, Jan. 11 - Jan. 14, 2019.
The company also announced that its custom fair-trade
rug for the refurbished mid-century modern lobby of Toronto boutique hotel, The
Anndore House, is a finalist for a 2019 Carpet Design Award in the Best
Interior category. The 100% wool hand-tufted lobby carpet was designed by
Creative Matters' Sandra Ciganic-McKinney for Studio Munge and crafted in
Thailand. Winners in each of eight categories will be announced at The Carpet
Design Awards ceremony on January 12, 2019 in Hall 9.
Art Day Workshops
get creative at Creative Matters Art Day workshops, which will be held during
Domotex 2019 in Germany.
Creative Matters will collaborate with Cover magazine and
Domotex to present its Art Day workshops, and will exhibit its latest
contemporary, fair trade creations at booth B40 (Hall 9) throughout the
exhibition. "The one-hour workshops
are an opportunity for Domotex visitors to try their hand at a floor covering
design and gain insight into the unique way we approach rug creation,"
said Carol Sebert, president of Creative Matters. "Art Day is the time we
take and method we use to generate fresh ideas. Our clients depend on us for
inspiring creations, ready to customize to their requirements. These workshops
have enabled us to build an extensive searchable archive of designs as well as
to develop our own collections of hand-knotted rugs." she said.
Domotex 2019 marks the second time that Cover magazine and
Domotex have worked together to present the Art Day workshops. In line with the
Domotex 2019 theme, "Create'N'Connect", Creative Matters Art Day
workshops will offer trade show visitors the opportunity to create a design of
their own. Up to eight participants per workshop will have an hour to
experiment with pastel, charcoal, ink and wax resist on paper. The guided
workshops will be available throughout Domotex. "The process is always a
lot of fun and it will give participants an insight into the complexities and
nuance of rug design," said Thilo Horstmann, project director at Domotex.
