Almost perfect, almost serene, almost discreet and indiscreet, almost happy. The simplicity of an irregular outline defines the form of each Aros rug.
Comprised of three circular models in contrasting colours and two different sizes, and a square version, this is a rug that is never exact or symmetrical.
The subtle asymmetry in each design invites freedom from conventional uses, making it possible to combine more than one piece to create new volumes in a single space. A timeless nanimarquina icon.
Elena Marquina, known as Nani Marquina, was born in Barcelona in 1952. After studying Industrial Design at the Massana school there, she started to work with the architects Sellés-Marquina in 1973. In 1984, she made her first carpets, and decided to devote herself to design and set up her company, Nanimarquina, two years later. In 1988, some of her creations were already being exported to Germany and Japan. A year later, one of her collections was selected for the shop at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Since 2006 Nani Marquina has been president of the ADP (Professional Designers' Association).
