After establishing herself as a freelance fashion designer, Wendy Morrison decided to make her mark on another branch of the industry: the beautiful world of rugs. The Scottish designer quickly rose to prominence among fellow architects and interior stylists, and today her distinctive brand of bespoke designer rugs is available to a global audience. Wendy’s signature style mixes her background in fashion design with impressions of far-away lands, exotic faunas with a hint of maximalism.

We chose Wendy Morrison’s rugs as the theme of the competition on grounds of our shared values. The utmost attention to detail, the care with which each product is created and their unmistakable visual impact make Wendy Morrison’s work all the more relevant to our exhibition. Consequently, each submitted design concept must incorporate one of the handcrafted statement rugs by Wendy Morrison as its centerpiece.
Our ambition is to erect a distinctive entry interior that has an immediate, long-lasting impression on visitors and fellow professionals alike, inviting them to further inspect, explore and embrace the peculiar atmosphere evoked by Wendy’s rug and the surrounding space.
