For its latest collaboration, GAN has partnered up with Neri&Hu, the multidisciplinary design studio that includes architects, graphic designers, master planners, interior and product designers.‎ They are the authors of LAN, a collection of rugs, seating modules and dividers.‎
LAN represents a synthesis of all these Neri&Hu skills: its design reinvents and questions the sofa typology by breaking it down into its various elements, which can then be assembled in different ways, organised around a rug that is an integral part of the set.‎
A seating module rests on the ground, over which a series of flat cushions and a tray can be arranged.‎
Its defining element, however, is the backing, inspired by the adaptable oriental screen.‎ A strip of hand embroidered fabric covers a metal structure, which serves as a backdrop for the composition and comfortably accommodates a series of moveable cushions, providing both warmth and comfort.‎
The indigo colour palette used for the various modules and backrest, the screen, the rugs and the cushions inspires the name of the collection: LAN means blue in Mandarin.‎ The designers wanted to pay homage to the eastern tradition of using indigo for dying fabrics that are normally used for home decoration.‎
The rug, made using pure new wool is manufactured using two different techniques: the base is a Glaoui, with a combination of flat-woven and knotted pile sections over which different layers of geometric motifs are embroidered by hand.‎ The result is a richly integrated surface of lines and tones that combine beautifully with the rest of the grouping, lending it greater depth.‎ LAN evokes the typical subtlety and beauty of the Orient.‎

Composition: 100% new wool
