Calata Piliero Editions features eight hand knotted wool, nettle and silk rugs, inspired by rusty metal blocks found in Naples' port district. Various levels of pile heights, carving and cutting techniques have been utilized to create an exquisite collection. The organic and artistic process of Calle Henzel has been the driving force in the development of Henzel Studio’s designs. He has over the years in an uncompromised fashion challenged the traditional conventions of subject matter, shape, finishings and special treatments as a result of painstaking research that includes vintage treatments, intricate surface compositions and even natural erosion – methodologies that further blur the distinction between art and design.
