The three themes Orchid, Hummingbirds and Jellyfish in the collection Miron are all designed by my dearest and closest friend and Berlin-based artist Miron Schmückle. I love Miron and his artwork, his botanical worlds he creates in sometimes gigantic compositions are breathtaking, please check his website www.miron-schmueckle.de. The three topics he created for us are related to his artwork but adapted to for as RUG STAR storytelling designs contemporary in the interior. I know I drove him sometimes mad with my requests but working with him was always soulful and I am sure this collection will talk about the love we share for everything
which is alive and grows ore moves in this beautiful world. At the end of the process, I added the colorations to his drawings and developed in Jaipur, Rajasthan the techniques to translate them into the finest 11/11 Persian weave in pure silk or wool and silk rugs. Welcome to the world of Miron and RUG STAR. All designs of our contemporary rug art collection are customizable on request. Custom and bespoke rugs are the trademarks of RUG STAR, contact us with your ideas after reviewing the collection. We would love to create your one of a kind rug for your interior.
May 24th, 2018, at 3:55 PM, when I took this picture of my dear friends Christiane, her daughter Orlena and Miron. On that day we celebrated the opening of Miron’s exhibition in the rug gallery of Christiane Millinger Handmade Rugs on Lovejoy.
A week earlier Miron and I arrived from Berlin in Portland, Oregon, USA. A week full of joy and work was expecting us. I was eager to produce my next campaign Intimacy Portland in cooperation with Christiane Millinger in 6 homes of friends and clients of hers. But there was more we wanted, we all been so very much excited to show Miron’s work the first time in Portland.
Christiane wrote at that time: We are thrilled to be presenting an exhibition of work by Berlin artist Miron Schmückle. His detailed images evoke vintage botanical drawings and employ a palette of rich jewel tones against clear white backgrounds. Schmuckle describes the resulting biomorphic flora as “allegories of the senses” and likens his process to the surrealist practice of automatic writing. “My hands start to translate my thoughts onto the paper,” he says. “Once I am in the process, I can stop thinking while my hand continues to paint.”
It was a soulful moment and a soulful week which none of us will ever forget.
