Mirage, the new collection of rugs designed for GAN by Patricia Urquiola, 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.
