Concept

There is always a reason to create, to laugh and to re-awaken.
Faced with the challenge of the paper, several authors embody its essence on designer rugs. A graphic and industrial designer, a painter, a fashion designer and a writer and gallerist sign each of these designs, in which very personal visions of contemporary rug, are evident.
All with a common bond: the choice of the absence of color, black and white pair, to intensify their identity. A dichotomy. A canvas horizontally. A work of art underfoot.
The original model for this piece was a watercolour painted by Mariscal in 1987. Its final design conveys the basic outline of the classic Persian rug. Using this as its point of departure, it is updated using unique lines reminiscent of those used in comics, synthesising East and West, traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design in just one product.

Estambul
The original model for this piece was a watercolour painted by Mariscal in 1987. Its final design conveys the basic outline of the classic Persian rug. Using this as its point of departure, it is updated using unique lines reminiscent of those used in comics, synthesising East and West, traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design in just one product.

Flores
Using a Picasso painting as a reference point, the fashion designer fills the white space with the essential features of flowers. Black stems, petals and the other stalks are interlaced, forming an elemental tapestry. In the line of abstract art, this work implies a rhythm between femininity and toughness, imprecision and simplicity.

Limbo
Limbo was a gallery/bar in New York where the creator of this piece used to listen to music, drink beer and hang his paintings, dreaming of fame. As a memory-cum-homage to that very special place, Armenter has given this piece, which is based around a type of cosmopolitan mandala, this evocative name. It features a staircase or spiral towards the centre or goal, inspired by the game of snakes and ladders, where much depends on chance. That’s why it is said that this rug brings luck.

Manuscrit
In 1991, Joaquim Ruiz Millet started a novel that he would finish five years later. During his work’s gestation period, a page of the unpublished manuscript gave rise to a series of objects, such as this rug, with spindly characters that move the work plane from hands to feet. Expanding it, the original becomes the abstract.
