DAAA Haus and James Vella Clark collaborate to create Convergence – a collection of high-quality carpets

In 2016, James Vella Clark started exploring the ‘abstract’ traits in his past works and sought to reinterpret them. That study led to a collection that formed the main body of paintings for CONVERGENCE, a solo exhibition launched in February 2019.

From the Convergence Exhibition, these were the paintings by James Vella Clark that inspired the carpet collection

 “India is a place where colour is doubly bright. Pinks that scald your eyes, blues that you could drown in.” 

Kiran Millwood Hargrave, The Girl of Ink and Stars

Conceived by DAAA Haus, the idea behind this exclusive rug collection is a simple testament to living art and design.

In 2019, Keith Pillow travelled to India for the first time; he went to explore the possibility of setting up a satellite design and architecture studio in Mumbai. He immediately fell in love with the country, with its traditions and spectacular craftsmanship. 

Experiencing the production of some exquisite rugs first-hand, he was intrigued by the idea of developing something unique, which would fuse Maltese art with Indian craftsmanship. Whilst pondering the concept, Keith recalled James Vella Clark’s Convergence exhibition – He contacted James about the idea – James agreed – and the vision to fuse abstract art within a rug took shape. The project brought several creatives together, executed by one of the finest hand-knotting rug manufacturers in India – Cocoon. This collaborative project is a literal convergence of talent, vision and design.
