To celebrate 25 years of excellence in contemporary rug making, Barcelona manufacturer Nanimarquina looked westward, from Catalonia to Basque country, for inspiration from one of Spain’s most notable abstract artists, Eduardo Chillida. Collaborating with the late artist’s son Ignacio, managing director Nani Marquina crafted seven rugs inspired by works spanning 47 years. From an early sketch of the feminine form, Figura Humana (1948), to a textured reproduction of a late-period sculptural work, Gravitación (1994), the hand-knotted rugs are personal tributes to a celebrated master of texture and line.
