AB Concept partners with House of Tai Ping for luxurious rug collection
23 Jan 2018 . BY Lauren Heath-Jones
The collection was inspired by the idea of looking down at the world from a great height
Design house AB Concept has partnered with bespoke rug specialist Tai Ping to create Nephele, an exclusive line of handcrafted rugs.

The collection drew inspiration from air travel, and the idea of looking down at the world from a great height. It was named for Nephele, the Greek nymph that Zeus sculpted from clouds. It consists of four couture rug, Polis, Oread, While Boreas and Syrinx.

Polis was inspired by night flights over lit-up cities. Gold embroidery represents streets, rivers and roads of an imaginary city. Oread depicts ‘an ethereal vision’ of Hong Kong Bay, with soft blue and white waves. White Boreas was inspired by shifting icebergs in the Antarctic. It is designed to reflect the fragile state of the planet. Syrinx features embroidered silk ribbons designed to look like thousands of blades of grass.

Ed Ng, co-founder of AB Concept, says: “Terence and I have worked with Tai Ping on many prestigious projects and have taken great pleasure in designing a collection that used the company’s vast array of technical skills to tell a story inspired by our experiences.”

Catherine Vergez, MD of EMEA at House of Tai Ping says: The Nephele collection is a wonderful representation of the artisan craftsmanship of the House of Tai Ping.”

Vergez adds: “The designs that AB Concept created showcase the delicate variations in tone that can be achieved by our in-house dying process, the beautiful refinement of Tai Ping handtufting and the unique texture that is possible because of the embroidery and carving skills of Tai Ping artisans.”
