The 2019 Capas collection by Mathias Hahn for nanimarquina focuses on the creation and use of layers of colors, tonality and shadow to generate intense depth while also being easy enough to blend into any environment, due to the presence of a wide range of chromatic shades. Mathias Hahn’s starting point for the Capas collection is his notion of shadows being never black or grey but full of color and geometry. The designer’s aim was to create a simple and light rug that has a casual feel to it while being complex in the use of colors and formation of depth. In order to achieve this, nanimarquina and Hahn intensely studied the specifics of Kilim weaving techniques searching for new ways of distributing color. nanimarquina and Hahn developed a new type of loose Kilim structure by loosening the fibers and using a thicker warp,. Normally, warp is not visible in a Kilim. By defining a different density of warp new tonalities surfaced, providing a visual texture where colors intertwine with each other along the carpet. The unique texture creates a dark-and-light effect and great profundity without becoming heavy. Like the layers of air in the atmosphere that reflect light and cast shadow.

Color is a pivotal element of the Capas collection. Each rug has a main color, a complementing tone and its darker gradient which in the composition gives the illusion of a cast shadow on the floor. Each rug is a color chord of a certain main color.

nanimarquina was founded in 1987 by Nani Marquina and has been dedicated to innovation and quality ever since, blending contemporary design and traditional craftsmanship techniques.
