what distinguishes the carpets from the zoë luyendijk studio (pronounced lion-dike) is that, while each has the immediate impact of something unusual, their lasting appeal stems from the free-spirited originality at the source of each design.
over time, the carpets continue to reward and yield unexpected discoveries.
there is more going on here than first meets the eye- beyond beauty, there is depth, substance, resonance.
each design is the result of a deeply personal exploration- on one hand playful, unbridled,
the other- intense, uncompromising and tenacious.
once committee, an idea is never explored halfway.
inspiration from nature- the colours and forms of coastal waters and forests
inspiration from myths- the stories that cut across time and cultures
inspiration from artists that have travelled before her
ultimately, she responds to something uniquely her own.
