In downtown Bogota, by Calle 11, there is an old payphone that is part of Proyecto 2415017. This project is an installation that gives tourists a taste of Colombian history. The payphone is just like the ones that were extremely popular in the country during the 80s. When you pick up the phone, the voice of Alfonso Reyes Echandia, the Court Supreme Justice who died during the coup of M-19 in 1985, comes out. In this recording, Echandia is urging the president of Colombia to declare a cease-fire. He is then interrupted by guerilla leader Alfonso Jacquim, who threatens the government with gunshots in the background. This unique installation transports the listener back to a dark moment in Bogota’s history, just steps away from where everything actually happened.
Inspired by the bright yellow payphone with navy blue, white, and red stripes, we created a multi striped rug. This recolor of Shimmer Stripe by ege carpets from the essentials collection brings in the right amount of color and pattern to any interior space you are working on. The essentials collection’s main point is to offer an easy and quick way to personalize any carpet. This collection brings in classic patterns in unique colors and the possibility of creating your own color pallet.
For our Proyecto 2415017 material board, we decided to include the mustard tones of Cuban Cigar by Dunn-Edwards Paints. We also included a deeper red like Roycroft Copper Red by Sherwin Williams. To bring in the navy blue from the striped payphone, we included Context by Opuzen. We brought a little bit of greenery, reminiscent of Colombia’s beautiful flora and fauna, with Go Moss Felt by Green Oasis. Lastly, we included lighter tones that add a bit of texture, like EchoPanel, Evolve Tatami, and Parker Stone.
If you want to recolor a multi striped carpet or any of our many designs, the recolor program is for you regardless of it being a single rug or larger scale project. Our recolor tool allows you to easily customize any carpet pattern to fit into your next interior design project. Additionally, we offer nine different substrates and sustainable options.
