Bart Goderis saw an intriguing pile of car tyres lying in a scrapyard. When he saw the tyres stacked nicely on top of each other, the link with woven textile was quickly made. From a distance, the tyres looked like thick black interwoven ropes.
In collaboration with a weaving mill/braiding mill, he developed a yarn that visualises the powerful pattern in the rubber tyres. The yarn is built up in various stages. The core is braided black polyester yarn, which in turn is entwined with narrow woven strips.
The result? Grand Prix is a characterful carpet with very strong masculine features; a carpet with a solid appearance that still comes across as elegant and pure.
