Details

Inspired by the artwork of Eduardo Chillida, this indoor rug pays tribute to the collage Gravitación Tinta 1996.

The Gravitaciones series were not simple overlapping paper cut-outs, but relief sculptures. Chillida playfully took the concept of gravitating almost to the limit, because the paper weighed so little. By suspending different types of paper he achieved a dramatic effect, exerting a new tension in the way the paper fragments overlapped or intercalated, in turn creating spaces of light and shadow between them.

This tension was our prime focus in transforming his work into a rug. Playing with ancestral techniques, fibers and different heights, the suspension that Chillida was looking for has been reflected.

  • Total height

    14mm

  • Density

    56,000 tufts/m2

fibers

88% Virgin wool

Virgin wool is more resistant than other types of wool. It has great durability and softness, plus it is insulating and absorbs moisture. Fiber with low environmental impact, since it is produced in the same place where the carpets are made. With a characteristic raw base color.

12% Afghan wool

Afghan wool comes from sheep grazed high in the mountains of Afghanistan. Naturally corrugated, it is a very resistant material with a rough touch. Due to the curl of the wool and the irregularity in the yarn, when weaving it it achieves an aged and unique look.

Technique

hand-tufted

Manual process in which, thanks to a manually operated gun, curves and fluid lines can be made. High density and durability.
