Rugs at Maison&Objet
From January 21st-25th Nani Marquina and Nodus will present their new carpets at Maison&Objet Paris.
'We have always been captivated by the traditional Persian rug, especially by the very old kilim savoir-faire which we see as a delicate mix of rusticity and fineness. We have been lucky to see this project carried through by the craftsmen of Northern Pakistan who managed to skillfully combine thirteen colors through the geometrical rhombus shape. As well as being crafted by hand, the Afghan wool is also spun by hand, which allows for some unique color tones to be highlighted. This subtly random technique makes each lozenge slightly different and each rug, a unique piece.' Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

Inspired by the beauty of the Italian fresco they filled their palette with soft, almost transparent colours. The concept is that if someone is interested they can order a palette rug filled with their very own emotional colours wich Nodus will translate in 266 different colours of wool. (300 x 200 cm).
'Roots' by Matali Crasset for Nodus is hand knotted in Nepal. The rug is waved at the beginning at one level and then carved at 4 different heights. Its border has an irregular shape: out of the round edge protrude the ends of the roots to which hand twisted cotton fringes are attached.
The diameter is 220cm. Limited edition in 20 pieces + 1 prototype all signed by Matali Crasset.
