Briggs und Cole

The designer team of Christy Cole (1977) and Jane Briggs (1977) enjoys experimenting with rough textured and unevenly structured materials. Cole gained a masters degree in visual and interdisciplinary art in 2006. In 2012 he and Jane Briggs founded the Briggs&Cole studio in Glasgow. Their designs are characterized by handcraft techniques and the relationship between 2-D and 3-D imagery, as for example in collages, symbols and surfaces.

"New materials and our love of experimentation are the source of our creativity – although we never lose sight of the context in which we are working", says Christy Cole. The designer believes that floor coverings must have a warm feeling in terms of touch, properties and visual impact.
