Chillida rug by Eduardo Chillida for Nanimarquina.
Inspired by old fashioned rugs, Nanimarquina recovers the essence of the rug, both in its texture and in its use. For the desert nomads, a house is built on a rug, as rugs originally served to protect people from the ground. They represented an object of daily use; as well as providing comfort, they also defined the space.
In the modern age, the artwork of Eduardo Chillida represents one of the greatest artistic accomplishments of the late twentieth century. Bringing tradition and modernity together, the Chillida collection pays homage to the artist with a range of rugs based on a chronological selection of his work:
