A/C.H. is pleased to present an exclusive limited- edition collaboration with fashion label LINDER. LINDER x A/C.H. features three rug designs by Kirk Millar, LINDER’s creative director of menswear. The Arizona-raised designer started Linder with partner Sam Linder back in 2016, with Millar eventually solely designing the menswear. “My work always depicts a narrative which revolves around a sensitive person trying to make sense of the world around them”. The departure point for the rug capsule was a series of digital collages by Millar using fragments of 19th century genre paintings sourced from Instagram, also featured as prints on key pieces in his menswear collection. As a seamless translation, the media of printing was also the creative methodology used in developing the rug designs; all made of chromogenic printed velour. Each of the three limited edition rug designs has a distinct colorway and is available in 3 sizes.
Designed in collaboration with Calle Henzel
Curated by Joakim Andreasson

Established in 2020 with the mission to support artists the A/C.H. collaboration program serves as a curated platform for internationally recognized and top emerging contemporary artists to seamlessly translate their work through an alternate media. A/C.H. was founded by Asa and Calle Henzel, owners of the world's leading art rug company; HENZEL STUDIO. Calle Henzel set up his first factory in 1999, transitioning his fine art approach into the age old craft of the weaver, reinventing rug making and bringing new approaches, materials and techniques to the industry. Together with Joakim Andreasson, curator for Henzel's artist program, he has collaborated with over thirty international leading and influential artists and foundations, including Nan Goldin, Douglas Gordon, Carsten Höller, Jonathan Horowitz, Helmut Lang, Marilyn Minter, Tony Oursler, Jack Pierson, Richard Prince, Anselm Reyle, Juergen Teller, Mickalene Thomas, Lawrence Weiner, Andy Warhol & Tom of Finland. A/C.H. is part of Henzel Art & Design Group, a family-run group, established 1999. Henzel strives to ensure the long-term development of each of its studios in keeping with their legacy, creativity, identity and expertise. Each of them is autonomous but has the same overall goals. They co-exist with each other, leading to unpredictable resonances such as cultural and artistic intersections.
Linder is a designer label headed by Sam Linder and Kirk Millar. The label started after an unlikely friendship was formed when the two met by chance back in 2012. In the years since, they have created a partnership, and a process, that is both unconventional and dynamic. With differences in age, interests, approach, and background—Linder in Art and Photography, Millar in Fashion—the two have developed a label led by an unorthodox, instinctual creative process. The results mix aggressive concepts, thoughtful design and execution, historical reference, and sensitivity to silhouette, into a dark but celebratory sensibility, creating the tension that is the brand’s DNA. The duo started in experimental menswear, launching the collection at New York Fashion Week: Men’s in January 2016. Since then, Linder has shown their collection on the runway, and felt a natural pull to expand into women’s. Now under a new approach, the design the duo has divided creative directing responsibilities, debuting their Fall-Winter 2018 collections with Linder overseeing women’s, and Millar overseeing Menswear.
