The Lattice collection springs from the organic imagination of the Bouroullec brothers.
The basic pattern, rhythmically reproduced, gives rise to a harmonic succession of colours.
Balance, proportion and irregularity are the key elements in the controlled disorder that transforms Lattice into a unique creation.
“Rugs are commonly designed as a surface on which a pattern is distributed. However in the case of Lattice, the pattern is defined as a constructive system to generate the form of the rug itself. The system of coloured bands, in which pattern, form and colour are linked in an intimate manner, creates a different scope.” – the Bouroullec.

Hand loomed Kilim
A flat-weave rug in which the warp strands attached to the loom are interwoven with the weft strands.
One of the main characteristics of this technique is that the weft is much tighter and denser than the warp, making it bear the weight of the pattern. These rugs usually contain many colors and generally display geometric motifs. The process permits the use of strands of different thicknesses and origins.
Traditionally, the kilim is a high-density, durable and resistant rug, even in the case of very lightweight rugs.
