Sam Baron

Eyes on Talents member, Sam Baron, is a French designer who creates products, exhibition and interior design projects, giving life to cross-over works mixing art and design. Three years ago, he envisioned Floræ Folium a wildly exuberant trio of rugs for the luxury carpet company Tai Ping to dress up its showroom for the 2020 Milan Design Week. As Milan’s 2020 and 2021 design weeks were canceled, he has only been able to introduce his creations now. The rugs, which have patterns of floral bouquets, are composed of wool and silk, and bits of plastic fibers representing pistils. The sheared and brushed yarns, dyed in 100 different colors, shimmer with reflected light to give the impression of something blossoming right there on the floor.
