The publication and invitation for re-vive, a collaboration between RENS and DESSO, were inspired by the project’s concept. RENS used a manual dyeing process to recolour outdated Desso carpet collections with red pigments. Just as Renee Mennen and Stefanie van Keijsteren slowly immersed carpets in dye, we used the idea of dipping for the logo by applying a gradation to the word re-vive. Textured organic paper, with its natural imperfections, relates to the idea of worn-in carpets. A red cotton thread binding connects to the overall theme of the underlying potential within textiles and fabric.
