New York-based architect Stephanie Goto began her career working alongside Rafael Viñoly and David Rockwell, and since then she’s built a reputation with her own architecture firm, established in 2004, for design of restaurants and cultural organizations. In 2014, Goto made her first foray into rug design via a collaboration with Now Carpets. Her Language Rug (2017) was inspired by universal written symbols that resonate implied meaning the whole world over. “People cannot necessarily speak a language but understand a feeling from what they see or what they experience,” she says. The pattern is a visual message simply translated by the way one sees it, subtly posing the question, “What’s your language?” Hand-tufted from wool and bamboo silk with a nonslip backing. Made in China.
