Created in collaboration with Tom of Finland Foundation the rugs in the series feature unique collages by Joakim Andreasson and are inspired by the numerous collage works that can be found at TOM House; covering entire pieces of furniture, in nooks on walls and ceilings, and even on the rear end of their vintage car. The featured collages are composed of proof prints from vintage Tom of Finland books published by the Foundation in the 80’s, pages from original PHYSIQUE PICTORIAL magazines from the 60’s-70’s and other printed material accumulated over the past thirty years. The dense works illustrate the vast styles and techniques of the artist, and offer a visually stunning and unfiltered insight into Tom of Finland’s work.
