Blur Green – Design Rugs – Nanimarquina

Select language

The sequence of geometric shapes and repetition are definitive hallmarks of the Bouroullec brothers.
Their mastery, meticulousness, and tireless ability to always go a step further, has led them to work on Blur, a collection 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 colours unevenly, creating an aged rug, reminiscent of the past.
