New mosque collection from ege

Press Release   •   Feb 11, 2013 11:59 GMT

ege has launched a brand new mosque collection, which
has been designed to enhance the atmosphere of the mosque. The Contemporary
Mosque Collection is designed by Audrey Miller, an American interior and
industrial designer, who specializes in conceptualization

The Contemporary Mosque Collection contains
a number of modern and contemporary mosque designs. Some designs with borders
indicating where to pray and others like ege’s normal repeatable designs. It is
possible to customize the rolls to match the prayer direction (Qibla).

The collection presents a pallet of patterns in 16 standard designs all in 4 colour combinations each offering a comfortable foundation supplementing the aesthetic beauty of the mosque.

Passion for Islamic art
Audrey Miller seeks inspiration from the sciences, the ancient arts and poetry. She has enjoyed 15 years of experience in the design field including 3 years which were dedicated to researching ancient ornamentation in the Middle East. Her passion is Islamic art and as a Muslim
convert since May 1998 it has been her dream to have the opportunity to design
mosques, religious centres, and to evolve the definition of “Islamic Design.”

Challenges the prayer area
Her inspiration for The Contemporary Mosque collection by Audrey Miller was drawn from the geometries found within all things. Implementing her modern style using Eastern elements, she both challenges and
enhances how the muslim prayer area can be defined.

“Removing the fire from inside you is as easy as removing it from the surface
of the sun. Immerse yourself in your passion. Strive endlessly to enhance the
lives of others and use your passion to change the world,” says Audrey Miller.

Stringent classifications
