Aelfie x Studio Proba Rugs

For the rest of this week, we’ll be bombarding you with our favorite finds from last week’s Milan furniture fair, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t first highlight one of the best things to recently launch on our shores: A colorfully graphic series of limited-edition rugs, pillows, and prints that represent a powerhouse collaboration between two Brooklyn designers, Alex Proba of A Poster a Day, and rug designer Aelfie Oudghiri. The two designers have strangely similar backgrounds — both attended medical school in Europe before finding their way to Brooklyn’s collaborative design community — as well as a complementary aesthetic that’s heavy on geometry and asymmetry. The rugs were inspired by Kurdish weaving techniques and mid-century surface design and are available in a limited edition of 3 rugs per pattern from SHOP Cooper-Hewitt, and we suggest you act fast — the rugs are on track to sell out by the end of the month!ASP-2000px-highres-potraits2ASP-2000px-highres-potraits1ASP-2000px-highres-potraits4ASP-2000px-highres-potraits3ASP-2000px-highres-potraits5print3-largeprint1-large
