With the desire to transfer the experience and knowledge of the textile world to a three-dimensional element, nanimarquina adds the Kilim Poufs Collection to the brand’s catalogue.
The architect and designer Marcos Catalán proposes a light, versatile, and user-friendly version of the classic home accessory that combines perfectly with the brand’s products.
Aiming to transfer the warmth of the rug to other decorative elements has led to the creation of cylindrical poufs filled with flame-retardant padding inside a birch base, fully upholstered with geometric Kilims.
Perfect to combine with block-coloured nanimarquina rugs, this decorative accessory adds a touch of colour to different rooms in your home. Choose between the two neutral models or, on the contrary, two colourful models to find the ideal chromatic balance at all times.
True to her design roots, Nani Marquina launched her namesake brand in 1987, a time in which contemporary rugs were non-existent in Spain.
After studying industrial design at the Escuela Massana of Barcelona and enjoying the success of her first bespoke textile designs, Nani launched nanimarquina, a brand dedicated to the design, creation, and distribution of rugs and textile products for the home, based on values such as observation, innovation, and enthusiasm, with the goal to use traditional craftsmanship and techniques to create contemporary pieces.
In 1993, Nani Marquina embarked on a daring business venture: she moved manufacturing facilities to the north of India. The further incorporation of craftsmanship and tradition as a new design concept marked a clear difference, consolidating the brand.
Throughout the years, the brand has garnered numerous awards such as the National Design Award and the Premi Cambra a la Gestió Empresarial (Chamber Award for Design Management) in 2005, as well as several nominations for the Príncipe Felipe Award for Company Excellence. Nani Marquina has also recently received the International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge Award from the Manhattan Chamber of Commerce, a personal achievement that led to the 2007 FIDEM Award for Entrepreneurial Woman of the Year. She has enjoyed tenure as the Chairwoman of ADP (Professional Design Association), and of Red (Reunión Empresas de Diseño). Starting in 2014, Nani Marquina is the President of the FAD, (Foment de les Arts i Disseny), in Barcelona.
Graduated in Design at Elisava School (Barcelona, 1997). Marcos collaborated with different architectural firms until he founded “Marcos Catalán, Studio” in 2006, developing integral projects of architecture, interior design, and product design. His studio practices a rigorous and rational method of work, with the aim of improving the quality and experience of the places in which it intervenes.
