Stockholm 2016: British designer Tom Dixon has created a collection of seven rugs influenced by patterns found around London for Danish manufacturer Ege.

The carpets feature repetitive motifs based on shapes found in streets and buildings around the city, including paving slabs, bricks and railway backdrops.

“London is the departure point for the collection – and for Tom Dixon a whole world of inspiration,” said Ege, which previously collaborated with Reykjavik designer Katrin Olina on a carpet collection.


Dixon‘s Brick design features irregularly arranged rectangular green shapes, while the all-black Crack carpet seeks to replicate the appearance of broken concrete.

More natural forms are shown in the Smoke rug, which features billowing white clouds against a brown backdrop, while the black and white Tide design appears to recreate the waves of the River Thames.
