R & Company and Amini Showcase Playful Rugs at Venice Biennale
When art fatigue sets in at the Biennale di Venezia, collectors may want to check out masterpieces for the floor. “Woven Forms,” installed at an 18th-century palazzo through July 31, was organized by New York gallery R & Company and carpet manufacturer Amini. The limited-edition rugs are hand-loomed in wool or silk according to designs by such contemporary luminaries as Wendell Castle, David Wiseman, and Thaddeus Wolfe. There’s also the Haas Brothers’s playful Cheetah Hayworth and Renate Müller’s rainbow-geometric Universe.
