We are excited to launch our debut collection with Studio Elke, a multi-disciplinary design studio led by founder and Creative Director, Elke Kramer.
Known for its unique jewellery and accessories, Studio Elke is an industry leader in the fashion and design worlds. The studio is respected for its emphasis on pushing the boundaries of originality and its exploration of unique materials, experimental fabrications and new forms. Studio Elke and Brintons have collaborated to translate Elke Kramer’s vision into a suite of customisable carpet designs – and the new venture is the Australian designer’s first ever carpet collection.
“I had written down a list of dream collaborations on a blank piece of paper many years ago, and a carpet collaboration was at the top of that list. When I was approached by Brintons, and invited to partake in their first Australian collaboration, I was thrilled at the opportunity,” she says.
Composite is a collection of wall-to-wall carpet designs that references Studio Elke’s decade-long archive of jewellery collections, translating Elke Kramer’s artistic and cutting-edge print designs into large-scale interior surfaces. The Composite Collection is formed of 10 designs: Sorceress and Sorcerer, Ceremonial, Keep Watch, Tassels, Existence, Arches, Musk and Jasper Nucleus, The Thunder Below, Charcoal and Concrete Brutalist, and Power of Symmetry. Unusual geometries, graphic patterns, and architecture-inspired shapes feature in the collection. The playful influence of materials such as terrazzo, concrete, marble, and mother of pearl are the designer’s trademark and have been cleverly woven into Composite. The collection skilfully marries Studio Elke’s striking materiality and textures, with Brintons’ timeless, premium woven Axminster carpet.
