Lost Steps, translation of the french Pas Perdus, is the latest creation of artist and designer Charlotte Jonckher.

This rug made of horsehair, wool, cotton and chenille was created as a sensory exploration for your feet. When you are waiting for someone who should have already been home. When you receive a phone call that conscripts you for an hour. In all those circumstances there is one thing we all tend to do: we pace. The Pas Perdu rug was designed to welcome the pacing, transforming the acts of waiting and worrying into surprising sensual experiences.

 

Hanging on display, as a work of art, we have one of Charlotte’s rugs in stunning variations of blacks. The different patterns, materials create wakes, reminiscent of fields, for drifting.
