Anna Lindgren and Sofia Lagerkvist have expertly combined the patterns and geometries of traditional flooring with new shapes and colours, creating rugs that feature a three-dimensional matrix, accentuated by their irregular shapes. PARQUET embraces GAN’s philosophy of integrating traditional and new elements with Scandinavian simplicity.
Using simple geometric figures with four to eight sides as building blocks, the renowned Swedish designers have created three models of reversible kilims: Tetragon, Rhomb and Hexagon. The three designs are made completely from pure new wool in manual looms, operated by skilled craftsmen and women of India.
Their shapes move away from the classic rectangle, and the designs and colours manage to visually enlarge the space in which they are located, and open it to new dimensions, with daring and freshness.
Tetragon is the most colourful rug in this collection, with a balanced mix of grey, blue, yellow, pink and dark green.
Rhomb takes a more organic shape, with less angular contours and a soberer chromatic range expressed in yellow, grey and white.
Hexagon declines in red and orange, captured in cubic motifs divided into vertical lines that play to create overlays and stratifications.
