Michael Banks designs Notte and Optics.


Notte and Optics are the result of recent collaboration with the British Photographic Artist Michael Banks.

British photo-artist Michael Banks is widely credited with creating some of the most exciting and unique art in today’s contemporary art scene. His highly original abstract photo-art has led to collaborations with international architects, interior designers and galleries, with his art being specified for high-profile international hospitality, corporate and private interiors. His art has been featured extensively in the international art & design press. His client list is a “who’s who” of publically quoted corporations and global hotel chains spanning the UK, Europe, USA, the Middle and Far East, as well as a select group of internationally recognised private collectors.

Optics brings us to a geometric abstract imagery that resembles a color spectrum. Its color and movement lead us to an image that was fragmented and then rebuilt in its final composition. Optics is a contemporary rug that suits the most diverse spaces.

Notte recreates the night imaginary. Mysterious and silent allows us to build images with light effects that are only possible at night. Abstraction prevails in this exercise becoming impossible to replicate this experience. Notte creates a link between the photographic work and painting resulting in a harmonious rug.
