Concept

Tacchini Edizioni expands its collection of designer rugs with a new creation from Umberto Riva: Narciso. It draws inspiration from the picture of the same name, painted in 1994 by the famous architect and designer, who has always had a secret passion for pictorial art. Narciso rug interweaves geometries and colours in an abstract image of subtle elegance, in delicate pastel tones that seem to portray a contemplation of beauty and its value, a reflection of truth and illusion. Narciso is entirely hand-knotted in Nepal, according to a complex, ancient oriental wool-knotting process. It is made of 100% Himalayan wool, a naturally robust and rugged material due to the high concentration of lanolin found in every fibre, thus guaranteeing the long-term durability of the rug. A work of contemporary art, perfectly combining pictorial art, design and craftsmanship.
