Kangan Arora will be talking about her latest rug collection with FLOOR_STORY within the rug companies new showroom space.

About this event

To coincide with the opening of the new FLOOR_STORY showroom, the rug company has collaborated with textile designer and internationally renowned creative, Kangan Arora on two striking and sophisticated collections which were developed and honed during lockdown. The meticulously thought-out patterns and colour combinations seen across the 10 new rugs, are borne from what Kangan describes as ‘often mathematical’ processes. The rugs are produced in 3 different constructs (Hand Knotted, Tufted and Hand Woven), each made with New Zealand wool and are influenced by architectural shapes and references, from both Indian and Japanese ancient traditions.

Arora, who was born in India and now lives and works in London says, ‘I feel I’m on a permanent quest to explore, understand and recontextualise the Indian visual vernacular; The act of creating is highly intuitive and emotional on the one hand; and very logical and mathematical on the other, so my design ethos lies somewhere in between the two’.

FLOOR_STORY is a maker of beautiful rugs with an eye on craft and unique design. Based in London's Shoreditch district, FLOOR_STORY’s showroom is home to hand-made rugs that prove its off-beat approach to rug design creates the very best results. Through the championing of young design talent and collaborations with established designers, FLOOR_STORY founded by Simon Goff in 2015, has built a unique and sometimes left field collection of beautifully made rugs. Standing alongside discoveries made on regular sourcing trips to rug meccas, as well as a series of in-house designs, FLOOR_STORY rugs truly celebrate both diversity and creativity.

We invite you to join us in conversation with Kangan Arora in our new showroom space on the 20th of September from 16:00.
