Lyk Carpet / Lyk Objects
For her label "Lyk Carpet" Mareike Lienau designs unique carpets and textile wall objects which are handmade in Nepal in a fair trade project.
Her approach asks : What is contemporary about craft?
Therefore, she radically questions the superficial functionality of the carpet and recombines traditional techniques. Away from the rectangle, Mareike Lienau wants to interpret the form positively, lustfully and imaginatively in a new, unseen and exaggerated way. She invites people to familiarise themselves with a value chain and to think about global responsibility.
