    Sculpture in Fiber: Rugs by David Nosanchuk

    Stark Carpet

     

    Trained as an architect, David Nosanchuk typically thinks in three dimensions. And he continued to do so in his first rug collection, Bas Relief for Stark. Unquestionably a texture story, it's also about natural and historical references. Astrum's starbursts explode in cut pile against a looped-pile field. The interconnected cut-pile circles and right angles that embellish the broad-looped field of Quadratus and the cut-pile lines that rise from the field of Orbis were modeled after a Louis Sullivan tapestry woven for the Chicago Stock Exchange. As for Heims, its Sullivan-esque cellular structure derives from a drawing that Nosanchuk did for a residential project. The eight patterns can be hand-knotted in Tibet or hand-tufted elsewhere in China, using wool, silk, or a mixture thereof. Rugs are made to order at any size, in standard or custom colors. 212-752-9000; starkcarpet.com.
