"The Insula Series" by Rhyme
Composed of the finest hand spun pure Irish wool, the debut collection of rugs by design studio Rhyme draws upon the history of ancient art forms and symbols while incorporating traditional techniques of master artisans. Inspired by Insula Art, an artistic movement that emerged during early Irish monasticism, the designs offer a minimalist interpretation of swirling motifs and spiral forms associated with this era of creativity. Each rug evolves from a hand drawn artwork and is fabricated by a master rug maker using only the highest quality woolen yarns
Rhyme founder Claire McGovern has designed private and commercial interiors, curated site specific art and design installations and collaborated with a variety of cutting edge international designers and artists. Her debut rug collection designed in New York City and made by hand in Ireland explores the concept of design as identity. McGovern is also Business Director of RUX Studios, a position she has held since 2012, where she plays a key role in the operations and growth of the company's two brands, Stickbulb & Gradual.
