Samovar Carpets & Antiques

January-18-2012

Samovar Carpets & Antiques, designed by PAD10, sets foot at the Pearl – Qatar with a very small footprint and relatively high ceiling. The main exhibition space is along the walls with a small floor area for customers’ display. Ceiling mounted tracks are used for displaying carpets where all walls are to be concealed by different carpet patterns, except for the impossible sensual spiral stair surface to be exploited by carpets’ display.
This architectural moment for the visual refuge is centrally located to allow full exploitation of the perimeter walls, yet visually and spatially curate in between the different wall spaces meant to display different lines of carpets: Persian, Contemporary, Classic, etc.
