The first of it’s kind in Latin America, the workshop consisted of a five-day, design and process- intensive class focusing on the history, manufacturing, materials and design of hand-made and hand knotted rugs that Odabashian has been manufacturing for over 91 years and sold in Mexico, Boca Raton, Miami and the world.
The workshop was hosted by Beata Nowicka, Director of the Interior Architecture bachelor program. Each student developed a unique design using the information provided during the initial phase of the workshop. Then, on the final day, each design was presented to a panel of selected professiors from CENTRO, professionals, designers and artists. One of the designs was selected and will be manufactured in a high-density hand-tufted quality rug made of New Zealand wool and bamboo silk.
The winning design will be on display at CENTRO at an exclusive exhibit showcasing the workshop as well as the talent of the students involved.
Odabashian and CENTRO will collaborate in this workshop each year during the Spring semester as part of CENTRO’s mission to further enrich the quality and depth of the Interior Architecture bachelor program.
