Maison&Objet 2013: these ice-cream coloured poufs and rugs by Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola for Spanish textile brand Gan were launched at Maison&Objet design fair in Paris this week.
The range includes cross-shaped rugs that form an interlocking floor covering.
A seating module with a small backrest can be combined with square and rectangular poufs to form flexible seating arrangements.
The designer selected a palette of yellow, coral, pink, grey and ivory for the collection.
We've featured lots of projects by Urquiola, including a sofa with a quilted leaf pattern and another inspired by traditional patterns from Uzbekistan – see all designs by Patricia Urquiola.
Other products launched at Maison&Objet design fair this year include a family of terracotta pots by Benjamin Hubert and a collection of furniture and lighting inspired by camping – see all products from Maison&Objet 2013.
Here's some more information from Gan:
Gan is launching a new concept: Gan Spaces.
One rug, one image, endless possibilities. The rug is the starting point, the main concept, and now you have the option to elaborate on its design by adding coordinating cushions, poufs and accessories.
Mangas Space design by Patricia Urquiola
The first of its kind, the Mangas collection revolutionised the rug industry. An exceptional design by a unique designer, Patricia Urquiola is now expanding the collection by presenting Mangas spaces.

The combination of the rugs and modules will guarantee a warm and harmonious environment.
