Commissioned from M/M (Paris) to celebrate both their twentieth anniversary and the publication of the definitive monograph of their work, the exhibition of elaborate rug designs acted like a condensed catalogue - or Carpetalogue - for M/M's practice.
Michaël Amzalag and Mathias Augustyniak originally established M/M (Paris) as a graphic design studio in 1992. Their close associations with the music, fashion and art worlds have led to their becoming one of the most distinctive and acclaimed creative voices of their generation, within graphic design and beyond.
The hand-knotted wool carpets, specifically produced for the exhibition by Abhishek Poddar in Varanasi, India, are sold as limited editions through the gallery. The monograph, M to M of M/M (Paris), written by Emily King, designed by Graphic Thought Facility and with a foreward by Hans Ulrich Obrist, is published by Thames and Hudson and was launched during the exhibition.
