go with the flow
Matali explores how watersheds work and the toy of water flow, the phrase ‘Let it be’ It resonated well with the designer. Currently, her interest lies in working with territories, and for the designer, the watershed refers not only to the river itself, but also to all the trees that surround it. She weaves the idea of steady flow in water features with decades of Odabashian history and discovers how rivers and their tributaries—how water flows and divides before they join—with ideas and traditional trade routes embodied by rugs and rug companies The flow of overlapping.

‘Watershed’ carpet reflects the flow of life
The colors reach the base of the geometric figures, emerge from their wells, and then reach the sky blue pool at the far end of the carpet. Matali’s goal of expressing flow is conveyed as she shows how water is becoming more and more important in our daily lives, if not already. “It’s of course always been important, but it’s getting more and more important every day. That’s why the pattern starts with something really simple and then starts forking and forking,” she says. The designer looks back on her work with Odabashian, which she believes helped bring their rugs to life. Throughout the process, she said she felt free when she made recommendations that matched the details the company was looking for.

specific and universal creations
Matali has a passion for creating works that are both specific and universal, and this project paved the way for her to create, while allowing her to experiment with a variety of colors. “I believe life is color and color is life,” she says. The designer believes that people have lost a lot of their sensibility, which is the factor that leads to the destruction of our nature and the destruction of roads, which will cause people to lose their foundational relationship with the earth. She restores the role of creativity to inspire the sensitive and help people remember the symbols and essence of life. “That’s what makes rug making so fun, because you can combine all kinds of symbolism and symbolic details,” she says.

Matali Crasset visits Mexico
Founded in Mexico City, OdabashiThe roots and historical endowment of Matali Crassey An insider’s view of the Mexican design industry. The designer remembers a 2007 trip to Mexico where she visited an impoverished region full of energy and passion for life. For the designer, it felt strange to see the apparent hunger in people’s eyes, but the contrast of the surrounding kaleidoscope of colours seemed to have permeated the spirit of the inhabitants, and Matali was impressed by the contrast.
“I love this photo as a reminder that color can bring life to people. I love working with color and rhythm. I think it’s an opportunity to take action instead of remaining passive,” she says. Today, everyone has an ecological reason to act on deteriorating environmental issues and concerns, the designers added. For Matali, it’s no longer about representing quiet landscapes or just their beauty, but about creating objects and art that urges people to change the way they interact with nature, a symbiotic relationship she and Odabashian forged with Watershed rugs.
