Earlier in 2015, Parisian concept store Colette presented HENZEL STUDIO COLLABORATIONS Volume 1, an exhibition featuring a selection of art rugs realised in close collaboration
with eight influential contemporary artists. The presentation marked the debut of art rugs by Nan Goldin and Richard Phillips, as well as a collection dedicated to Tom of Finland. Henzel Studio, established in 1999, is a Swed- ish luxury rug manufacturer founded and directed by Calle Henzel. Henzel Studio Collaborations was conceived in 2012 as a continuous initiative whereby contemporary artists across disciplines and genres are invited to freely and seamlessly translate their work using the alternate mediums and artisanal practices available at Henzel Studio.
