Rug Grovigli

designed by Armando Milani
The "Inganni Spaziali" collection celebrates Italian design through a collaboration with a historic name in graphic design, Armando Milani. The four carpets that compose the group: Emozioni, Illusione, Groviglio, Connessioni, are the large-scale transposition of analog works from the 1970s and are aimed to pay homage not only to the aesthetics of those years but also, above all, to an era marked by great expressive freedom, the courage of experimentation and the empirical process of manipulating materials that allowed the creation of profoundly simple and evocative works. To recreate the three-dimensionality of volumes and the light and dark of gradients, we combined wool and silk yarns in different and uneven concentrations on the rug's weave. The warm palette and homogeneous pile height evoke the surface of paper-cotton by returning a soft and tactile feeling.
