A Mural for Calm and Chaos

Renowned artist Tiarna Herczeg partners with Double for an exclusive and limited edition design capsule that brings her vibrant abstract art to life on Australia’s first machine washable rugs. Each design is an original artwork by the First Nations artist, showcasing vibrant colours and patterns influenced by her heritage and existing body of work. Inspired by idiosyncratic landscapes of Australia, Tiarna’s art is often understood through the urgency of her cultural and spiritual identity not living on Country. This longing to go home. Blending artistry and practicality, the collection allows for Tiarna’s art to be experienced in a new, functional medium where life’s best moments can unfold.

Through a rich, earth-toned palette of ocre, marigold, and browns juxtaposed with pops of pink, cobalt, and leafy greens expressed in organic shapes and abstract lines, this exclusive rug capsule pays homage to Herczeg’s Far Northern Queensland heritage. The collection translates the stories and spirit of Herczeg into pieces that welcome you home.Tiarna sees this capsule as a way to create rugs that transcend decorative elements, becoming integral components of lived-in spaces. She envisions homes where these rugs experience life alongside people, capturing the essence of family, warmth, and the passage of experiences.

Double's patented two-layer construction ensures that each machine washable rug remains vivid and beautiful overtime, wash after wash. Seamlessly merging the artist's creative vision with the brand's dedication to crafting rugs made for real life, the collection honours Australia's rich heritage while looking towards the future of design. Dance, celebrate, create, make a mess on them — the capsule’s art is life expressed. A mural for calm and chaos, true to the real Aussie spirit.

FAQ

What do the designs in the collection mean?

The vibrant landscapes and abstract shapes you see in these rugs are deeply personal to Tiarna. The rugs draw inspiration from her First Nations heritage, personal experiences, and existing body of work. Her art is often best understood with a comprehension of Indigenous non-Western maps. Oftentimes, she paints as if she is looking down on the land from an aerial perspective. In her spare time, she studies books and photographs from her childhood, using her memory as a notebook for inspiration. Remembering simple moments like playing with her cousins in Rockhampton, accidentally eating chillies, protecting mango trees at home from bats, and sharing ghost stories at night. Tiarna paints intuitively and without direct ideas, instead using the process as a way to let go and learn from her work. Each rug is an exploration of Tiarna's cultural and spiritual identity, reflecting her mission to share it through art.
