Chillida collection rugs by Nanimarquina

  • by

Dezeen Showroom: Spanish design brand Nanimarquina has added four new rugs to its Chillida range that reference the work of Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida in the centenary year of his birth.

The four rugs in the Chillida collection bear unique patterns yet all take cues from artwork by Chillida, who specialised in large-scale abstract sculptures made predominantly from metal and concrete.

Four new rugs have been added to Nanimarquina’s Chillida range, which first launched ten years ago

The Dibujo Tinta 1957 and Collage 1966 rugs are both informed by collages created in the development process of one of Chillida’s most well-known works, the Peine del Viento sculpture in San Sebastián, Spain.

Gravitación 1994 is informed by the sculptor’s relief sculpture of the same name, with a pattern that looks as though it has been embossed into the wool.

All rugs are hand-tufted by artisans

The Figura Humana 1948 rug deviates from the other three as it is decorated with an illustration of a female nude taken from the sculptor’s sketchbook.

Both the newly added rugs and the existing pieces in the collection are hand-tufted from New Zealand wool and silk and come in monochromatic colourways.
