Overview

The Losanges rug collection is a study of simplicity and elegance, by Paris based brothers and designers Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec for Spanish brand Nanimarquina. These modern rugs are a reinterpretation of the traditional Persian rug, created by using the ancient kilim techniques. The Losange rugs are luxurious, hand woven Kilim rugs (flat tapestry-woven rugs) that are made of pure hand spun Afghan wool. Technically complex, the Losanges collection requires great skill due to the combination of 13 colors in the geometrical rhombus pattern, a great challenge for the craftsmen of northern Pakistan. Aside from the handcraft techniques involved, the Afghan wool is also spun by hand to achieve unique color tones that make each rhombus different, and each rug a unique item.

The Losanges colection is available in two color patterns (Losanges and Losanges II) that are offered in three sizes (Medium, Large, Extra-Large). These high-quality rugs are entirely handcrafted, which may result in slight variances in size. These rugs are hand-dyed and color tones may vary a little, which is part of the natural beauty of the rugs. Prolonged exposure to sunlight may alter rug color tone and may even cause discoloring.

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.

Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec

Designers Ronan Bouroullec (born 1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (born 1976) are multi-award winning brothers who have been working together for about fifteen years, bonded by diligence and challenged by their distinct personalities. They have brought a distinctive point of view to the French design scene with their attention to detail and refined sense of balance. In 1997, they were spotted by Cappellini, giving them their first industrial design projects. They began working with the Galerie kreo in 2000 and had their first solo show there in 2001. Since then, they have gone on to work with multiple international brands such as Artek, Alessi, Flos, Hay, Kartell, Ligne Roset, Magis, Iittala, Nani Marquina, Samsung, and Vitra. Their work has covered many fields ranging from the design of small objects to spatial arrangements and architecture, from craftsmanship to industrial scale, from drawings to videos and photography. Designs of the Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec are part of select international museums’ permanent collections such as the Musée National d’Art Moderne – Centre Pompidou and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Design Museum in London, and the Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.
