Akira Isogawa Artful Rugs – Designed With Inspiration
Designer Rugs unveiled Akira Isogawa’s latest rug collection ‘‘Akira Hirameki’ (Hirameki – English translation is “Inspiration”) at the  Sydney waterfront venue Simmer on the Bay.

Akira Isogawa, one of Australia’s most celebrated and successful fashion designers, has now produced a new stunning addition to the Designer Rugs portfolio.

Akira Isogawa’s magnificient high-impact and vibrantly colourful rugs were vertically hung and brilliantly lit in an impressive display around the towering brick walls of the venue – a perfect backdrop to showcase the high quality art of the carpet. 

Akira spoke of how, for this collection, he had selected handmade textiles and sourced the inspiration for the designs from his travels around the world.  Yosi Tal, Managing Director and co-founder of Designer Rugs, enthused affectionately about both the collaboration between his company and Akira and ‘Akira Hirameki’, the third in a series of collections the Japanese born designer has produced for Designer Rugs.

Brigid Kennedy’s Simmer on the Bay team provided fabulous canapés for invited guest list made up of  interior design aficionados and media.  The canapés were accompanied by the classic Pommery French Champagne and also delicious cocktails combining the Pommery with signature liqueur St .Germain.

The Satsuki Odamura Koto Ensemble, dressed in traditional Japanese kimonos, added perfectly to the ambience of the occasion by playing three Kotos, the traditional Japanese stringed instrument.

The new ‘Akira Hirami’ collection details can be viewed http://www.designerrugs.com.au/ or, of course, at their various showrooms.
