Vexillum - Margo Selby x Christopher Farr
MADE TO ORDER
Margo Selby has joined forces with Christopher Farr to produce the Vexillum rug – a project at the intersection of Margo’s practice and the embodiment of our tenet ‘Art Into Industry’. The design directly quotes Margo’s handwoven artwork.
"When I’m designing a rug, I treat the format as my canvas to create a piece of functional art. I am thrilled to be working with Christopher Farr – who I revere as world leaders in the production of handcrafted luxury rugs.”
– Margo Selby
“I have a lot of respect for Margo as a textile expert. Her high level of technical understanding, her prowess as a handweaver, allied to her innate sensibility as an artist is a pretty unbeatable combination. Margo is almost forensic in her colour combinations. It’s not just visual impact, but the colour theory behind the design.”
– Matthew Bourne, Director Christopher Farr
Margo’s Vexillum series of artworks began as a commissioned installation for the Crafts Council’s annual international fair for contemporary craft and design at London’s Somerset House, and won the COLLECT Open Award 2020.
