The history of nanimarquina is based on a very clear idea: wanting to design rugs. It’s a simple statement, a transparent declaration of intent that has become a reality by putting into practice values such as observation, innovative endeavor, communication, emotion and knowing how to contemporise traditional craftsmanship.
Chillida – A tribute to an artist of our time
The artwork of Eduardo Chillida (1924-2002) currently represents one of the greatest accomplishments of the arts in the late 20th century. Nanimarquina created the Chillida collection based on a chronological selection of his work, from Figura Humana 1948, through Dibujo Tinta 1957, to Collage 1966 that reflects the process prior to his most famous sculpture, the Peine del Viento in San Sebastián. It also includes two pictures of his famous hands from the 90s, and Gravitación, 1993 and 1994, where he creates a new form of relief, sculpture made of paper.
All this work has been accurately translated into the rugs. All of them are handmade using various techniques and different materials like wool, silk and mohair, to give texture and show the essence of his work and provide desired value.
