Blur is a kilim collection designed by Bouroullec brothers that offers two different readings. When viewing the rug from afar, an indefinite, unfocused surface is apparent, that gives its name to the collection. Nevertheless, upon approaching the rug, lines and rhythmic rhombuses in different proportions are revealed, in the purest kinetic style. This blurred effect has been achieved by inverting the sense in which the kilims are traditionally woven, which makes the process much more laborious. This change in weaving causes the lines to be blurred, mixing two colors unevenly, creating an aged rug, reminiscent of the past.
Driven by a singular desire and a very creative background, Nani established nanimarquina in 1987 with a clear goal: to design unique and surprising handcrafted rugs for people to enjoy. This family-owned company is pioneer in the field of contemporary rug design; searching for constant innovation, handcraft techniques, and new materials. Based in Barcelona and NYC, the company produces in India and Pakistan discovering the unlimited possibilities of the craftsmanship. Nanimarquina works with local and international designers to ensure a diversity of themes and experimentation with various textures, materials and shapes. The result: one-of-a-kind nanimarquina rugs for each of our customers. A rug for each space and emotion.
