A nanimarquina classic. A patchwork of twenty colours, a decorative melody.
During one of the many visits to India, while observing a sample of wool fibres grouped by colour tones, Nani Marquina envisioned the embryo of one of the brand’s most emblematic designs.
Twenty colours form a magic checkerboard of vibrant colours that create a rhythmic sensation of movement. This design, born from a seemingly random combination of shades, actually follows a very specific linear sequence.

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).
