Chillida Gravitación 1991 Tapestry

Eduardo Chillida

The Chillida collection will be available exclusively in selected shops. Find out where from 1 June.

Details

Inspired by the work of Eduardo Chillida, this tapestry design pays tribute to the Gravitation collage. Ink 1991.

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 hiswork into a rug. Playing with ancestral techniques, New Zealand wool fiber and different heights, the suspension that Chillida was looking for has been reflected.

  • Total height

    15mm

  • Density

    124,000 knots/m2

Fibers

100% New Zealand wool

Typically, New Zealand wool is known to be the whitest, cleanest, purest and most natural in the world. Its softness is due in part to the altitude and the vegetation available to the herds. It is guaranteed to be cruelty-free.

Technique

Hand knotted

Handwoven on a vertical loom where the thread is strongly attached to the warp by means of knots.

It involves a rod that allows cutting an entire row of knots.

Cleaning and care

Tips

Vacuum frequently.

Clean stains with the appropriate solution before they dry.

Take the rug to specialized dry cleaners, if necessary.
