Wool rug with optical pattern



Design Year

Knot by knot, all of them made by hand.‎ In other words: hand-knotted.‎ The classic rug manufacturing technique to achieve perfection.‎  

Patricia Urquiola creates another modern classic accessory.‎ Mirage, the new collection of rugs designed for GAN, is destined to become a treasured icon.‎ Colour, geometry and superimposition are combined with this rug of pure New Zealand wool manufactured using the hand-knotted technique.‎

The mould-breaking approach and ongoing experimental nature of Patricia Urquiola’s work has produced a rug, Mirage, that takes on the qualities of a painterly work of art.‎ Its formal power and tonal strength, the playful game of perspective and the illusion of movement of the interwoven bands, escaping the rectangular limits of a typical rug, recall Op art and avant-garde artistic movements of the beginnings of the 20th Century.‎ The entire design of Mirage is inter-linked, with no beginning or end, just like Urquiola’s favoured expression.‎

The colour shading in addition to defining the bands also creates a three dimensional effect that breaks out from the usual rectangular rug format.‎ An exercise in three dimensional composition.‎ The edges follow its logic as a series of angled rectangular bands that escape the regular form.‎

Mirage is testament to the time and commitment that GAN provides its designers to come up with original creations employing craft sensibility and re-interpretations of tradition methods.‎ Mirage is a technically complex rug to produce.‎ The colour variations require an expert eye that organise the felt into precise bands of varying tones in the traditional hand knotted method.‎

The collection is available in 200 x 310 cm format (6’7” x 9’11”); in three primary colour palettes; blue, orange and nude.‎
