The Lips by Sandra Keja Planken for Noun Amsterdam

Dezeen Showroom: Noun Amsterdam's colourful wall rugs called The Lips are designed by Sandra Keja Planken to add "depth, vibrancy and boldness" to interior spaces.

The rugs are made from bright eucalyptus wools, which have been applied in layers and with different textures to evoke varied landscapes.

This is achieved using the traditional technique of hand-tufting, which involves punching strands of wool into a canvas that is stretched on a frame.

Planken chose to use European eucalyptus wool for The Lips as the fibre is naturally-occurring and can be sustainably produced.

According to Noun Amsterdam, The Lips' design also takes cues from the human body, and can be custom-made in any size and shape.

"The Lips takes inspiration from female and male forms," explained the Dutch studio. "They make you feel like you are being hugged and kissed by the wonderful landscape by walking through the wool."

The Lips forms part of Noun Amsterdam's wider series called The Wonder Room, which comprises handmade and locally produced products such as tables, prints, and lamps.

It is designed "for people who aren't afraid, those who yearn to add depth, vibrancy and boldness to their space".
