Designed by Nynke Tynagel for Qeeboo, Let's Dance rugs show the foot traces of men and animals in a jam session where different types of foot prints, belonging to the two categories, are mixed. The carpets are made in two versions, round and rectangular, with a contrasting background.
“The World has been rocked and we dance to a different tune.
East meets West on a new wave of magic carpets.
We were once divided, but we’ve now collided.
So let’s rock. Let’s embrace. Let’s dance!”
Nynke Tynagel (born 1977) is a Dutch graphic artist, textile and product designer. Tynagel’s work and creative signature has been described as bold expressive and iconographic imagery, both heraldic and pop cartoonish that projects a strong narrative quality. Her visual fields are tightly conceived, carefully placed and contextualised into intense but harmonious compositions, presented in a range of crafts including stained-glass, ceramics, hand-painting, textile, marquetry, alongside laser and printing techniques. Job Smeets and Tynagel worked together at Studio Job for over 20 years. The VA Museum and Groninger Museum, Viktor Rolf, Barney’s New York, Alessi, Swatch, Heinz, Land Rover, Swarovski, Faena, Godiva, HEMA, Rizzoli, Maharam, NLXL, Moooi, Qeeboo, Bisazza, Vlisco, Disaronno, Seletti, Creutz Partners and Nodus were just a few of their clients. In 2020 Tynagel founded her design studio bearing her own name.
