    Zakaria Rugs

    Made by the creative duo Philip Rosenberger and Gabrielė Adomaitytė the designs for the Zakaria Rugs Collection are evolved through minimal gestures of digital drawings with lines, color, and the slight figurativeness of abstract shapes. Initially, the designs were made to integrate into the interior with forms that mimic the natural world through a digital lens. 

    Zakaria Rugs company was founded by Philip Rosenberger in 2019, in Amsterdam. Rosenberger decided to create an interior design platform not only to embrace the functionality of design and celebrate craftsmanship, but to build strong trust and share ideas within the creative community that the company is surrounded with, to raise voice and awareness towards inconsiderate consumerism and demonstrate significance of hand-made products and what kind of impact they have in the circulation of economies in India and Morocco. Most importantly, to draw the attention to ecological problems that the world faces today. Zakaria Rugs collaborate with artists and other creatives who are not only inspiring people but are also under our radar by contributing to the cultural community or expressing a meaningful connection to Zakaria Rugs.
     

    Design Approach

    The fully abstract designs of the rugs have taken cues from the process of distorting the images through various devices and programs. The process of minimizing visual elements and leaving only suggestive forms and essential color blocks is an invitation to embrace the vivification of the painterly way of working with a brushstroke and perceive elements that can feel like accidents or effects of photocopying. 

    By designing high-quality products intertwined with contemporary art, the essence of Zakaria Rugs is the appreciation for handcrafted goods, as opposed to the now-normalized fast-paced and unsustainable mass-production of goods.
