FLOORCOVERING ‘ HAYON X NANI’ BY JAIME HAYÓN FOR NANIMARQUINA

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Elle Deco -

The child­like pat­terns on this col­lec­tion are some­what mis­lead­ing, but there’s noth­ing ele­men­tary about how these rugs are made. On the con­trary, Span­ish de­signer Hayón learnt about tuft­ing, a spe­cial man­ual tech­nique for weav­ing, and ex­per­i­mented with new in­ter­pre­ta­tions of this ar­ti­san skill to cre­ate these startling re­sults. At first glance, the chaotic jumble of lines seems like an abstract sketch, but look closer and a fan­tasy world emerges, pop­u­lated by tur­tles, lips and hands. £1,200, Twen­tytwen­ty­one (twen­tytwen­ty­one.com; nanimarquina.com). ➤
