Between 2005 and 2006, the architect Elías Torres undertook the remodeling of the mythical Saló Daurat in the Palau de la Generalitat de Catalunya, the seat of the Government in Catalonia, where one of the most well-known works of the artist Antoni Tàpias is located.
The main challenge of the project was to reproduce and enlarge detail of the marble mosaic of the original floor to give value to the origins of the building and give coziness to a large room with great notoriety within the palace. Nanimarquina has made a circular carpet 7 meters in diameter with the exact colors of the marble it reproduces.
