The three topics of the collection Miron are Orchid, Hummingbirds and Jellyfish. All designed by my closest friend and Berlin-based artist Miron Schmückle. I love him and his outstanding work as a unique artist. His botanical compositions are breathtaking, please check his website www.miron-schmueckle.de. He created for RUG STAR Orchid, Hummingbirds and Jellyfish as illustration work and of course they are related to his artwork. But of course they are adapted and modified to match RUG STAR‘s storytelling rug designs in modern interior. Working with Miron is soulful and I am sure this collection will talk about the love we share for everything
which is alive and beautiful world. He illustrated, I added the colors and developed the rugs in Jaipur, Rajasthan. We translated his drawings into the finest 11/11 Persian rug weave. As material I choose mostly pure silk, some times a combination of wool and silk. Welcome to the world of Miron and RUG STAR. All designs of our contemporary rug art collection Miron 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.
