Patricia Urquiola designed the Bandas collection for the rug company's new concept Gan Spaces, in which the floor coverings are also used to upholster furniture and accessories.

"Using a single set, you can change the use and appearance of your space as many times as you like," said a statement from Gan.

The long, thin wool rugs are patterned with large stitches that form grids across the surfaces. Even chunkier lines in different colours add further details to the designs.

Background colours including light grey, faded pink, cream and black are used in different combinations with orange, yellow and blue patterns.

These textile strips are also used to cover a series of blocky modular seats, running in lengths along the top and wrapping around two sides.

Orange lines create border details along the edges of the rugs and seating collection, which includes a chair, a chaise longue and two sizes of pouf.

The seating is made from wooden frames and foam rubber, completely covered with upholstery. A neutral grey wool textile is used for the sides that are not covered by the patterned fabrics.

Each seat and rug is the same width so they can be positioned together in various arrangements.

There's also a series of matching cushions that fit neatly when placed on the furniture pieces.
