Rug Illusione

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, Grovigli, and Connessioni, are the large-scale transpositions of analog works from the 1970s. In "Illusione," the optical illusion gives three-dimensionality to the carpet and transforms it into a living object. The composition of natural and precious fibers and the complex palette perfectly recreate the volumes and gradients. The weave of the Illusione rug contains 60% wool and 40% silk, with a knot density of 100 knots/inch². The warm palette and homogeneous pile height of 6 mm evoke the surface of paper cotton, returning a soft, tactile feel. The size and rectangular shapes of the rugs maintain the proportions of Milani's original works but can be adapted to the customer's needs.
