The beauty and discerning eye of Inigo Elizalde

Creative people, like Inigo Elizalde,  seem to find inspiration in places where others barely cast a glance; the worn look of an abandoned warehouse floor, the way an oil slick floats on top of a puddle in the street, the lush confab when nature and the built world collide (think rainstorms.)

Translating these inspirations into functional art – or rugs as we call them, Inigo seems to have been born to this task.  His inspirations are what he calls ‘found objects,’ and he articulates this inspiration into his handmade rugs and textile designs.  Based in New York City, Inigo brings his appreciation for the world around him (he’s well traveled and was born in born in the Philippines in the midst of a powerful tropical typhoon (hmm…now that’s interesting!) to bear in all of his designs.

Every rug is custom – and of course made from natural materials.  Inigo does have a distinct point of view – his aesthetic is well honed (he holds a degree from RISD.)  That being said,  he is a collaborator of the highest order- he’ll let your (or your clients’) ideas flow through him. There we go again – back to that water inspiration.

We love the almost reflective quality of “Double Hudson River” above. To see more of Inigo’s work on Modenus click here.
