These simple yet refined offices are a testament to the harmonious combination of materials used, resulting in something quite unique. Not only are the eleven custom-made, 100%-natural Knitted rugs a great way to delimit the various rooms, but they also contrast perfectly with the space itself and the rest of the objects in it, providing a warmth and understated comfort that enhance our lives without knowing quite why.

Free of dyes and chemicals, these hand-woven rugs, made using the traditional Sumak technique, provide a soft yet hard-wearing rustic finish that incorporate the hallmark braided texture of Sumak. The organic appearance of jute, a 100% biodegradable and recyclable fiber, sourced locally, awakens our senses, enticing us to go back to basics and connect with our inner selves.

Once again, nature sustains the quality of the materials used, broadening the scope of our lives.
