Here's some text from Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec:


We are pleased to present a new rug collection, called Losanges, designed for the Spanish brand nanimarquina.

Losanges by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

We have always been captivated by the traditional Persian rug, especially by the very old kilim savoir-faire which we see as a delicate mix of rusticity and fineness.

We have been lucky to see this project carried through by the craftsmen of Northern Pakistan who managed to skillfully combine thirteen colors through the geometrical rhombus shape.

As well as being crafted by hand, the Afghan wool is also spun by hand, which allows for some unique color tones to be highlighted.

This subtly random technique makes each lozenge slightly different and each rug, a unique piece.

The Losanges collection will be presented at the nanimarquina booth Hall 8 F36 during the Maison et Objet trade show (January 21-25, 2011).
