Rembrandt van Rijn and Ferdinand Bol have already captured Persian carpets as a tabel cloth in the 17th century portraits of the aristocrats. In the early 20th century, Persian carpets on top of tables emerged in many households. After the early 20th century the use of them almost completely disappeared. Collection Café 6116 is inspired by this. The pieces contain actual Persian carpets. Every piece is therefore unique. Ruben uses carpets that witnessed the events in the lives of their owners for many years. The ravages of time characterised them and beautified them. Ruben captures the years of memories and secrets by fossilising them. Scars, which remain in sight after processing, are the evidence of a former live.
