Nanimarquina Doblecara 4 Rug
Doblecara, designed by Ronan Bouroullec, reflects his spirit of geometry through subtle linear and intermittent strokes ending in a blurred point, creating a sense of movement in the viewer's eye. The mastery and indefatigable desire to always go one step further resulted in this collection with a double meaning. Doblecara is a reversible rug, both sides of which can be enjoyed, the ‘B’ side being the most subtle and delicate, while the ‘A’ side shows the straight-lined design in its maximum expression.
The choice of technique was key to the development of Doblecara: for the first time, the ancestral kilim and its reminiscences of things past have been combined with hand-knotting to create the lines, giving the rug great strength and rhythm.
Each rug is handmade from hand-spun Afghan wool. Its rustic appearance and the inherent irregularities of this fiber come together to create a unique rug that evidences the beauty and authenticity of the craftsmanship involved. Lines, strokes and geometry come to life in four conceptual rugs in three colours combined in positive and negative: black-beige, beige-black, beige-red, beige-red, beige-beige.

Roman and Erwan BouroullecRonan Bouroullec (born 1971) and Erwan Bouroullec (born 1976) have been working together for some ten years. Their collaboration is a permanent dialogue nourished by their differing personalities and shared perfectionism.<br /> In 1997 they presented their “Disintegrated Kitchen” at the Salon du Meuble in Paris and were spotted by Giulio Cappellini, who gave them their first industrial design projects, notably the Lit clos (Closed Bed) and Spring Chair. In 2000, Issey Miyake asked them to design a space for his new collection of A-Poc clothes in Paris. Then came the decisive meeting with Rolf Fehlbaum, chairman of Vitra, which resulted in their conception of a new kind of office system, Joyn, in 2002. This was the beginning of a special partnership which has borne fruit in numerous projects, including Algues, the Alcove Sofa, the Worknest and the Slow Chair. Since 2004, the Bouroullecs have also been working with Magis, for whom they have designed two complete furniture collections, Striped and Steelwood. Finally, they have worked on several types of textile wall systems, such as the North Tiles, in close collaboration with the Kvadrat brand, for whom they designed a new Stockholm showroom in 2006.
