Networking, patterning and reporting

The Austrian artist created these carpet designs to feature repeated patterns of circles and trapezoids. Using vibrant colour combinations that include orange, green and purple, Bretterbauer wishes to suggest shapes that "apply ornament as surface notation". He says these carpets are about "networking, patterning and reporting" which, in some ways, one might say echoes the work of our company.
