Gandia Blasco Black Canevas Abstract Rug
This is the Charcoal Abstract rug from the Canevas collection, a rug with a worn look, like a blurred surface. Its abstract design is handmade, employing a modern take on the cross-stitching technique and using a dark gray felted wool base and dark, thick wool yarns. It is available in two sizes.
With Canevas, Belgian designer Charlotte Lancelot has managed to create a surprising contemporary collection through a revision of a classic and artisanal technique, eluding nostalgia. On a base of perforated felt, the Canevas collection uses the cross-stitching technique to create unusual aesthetic compositions, drawn with voluminous, colored wool threads. Some are manifested as blurred flower bouquets, others are abstract and have a worn appearance.
This series is composed of rugs, cushions and poufs, all of which can be used independently or combined to create cohesive, informal spaces. All the different elements of the collection are handmade by Indian artisans using 100% virgin wool.
CANEVAS, A GAN SPACES COLLECTION
GAN spaces are collections meticulously constructed from innovative concepts and artisanal production methods. Suggestive approaches that, stemming from a rug, are capable of bringing to life a whole family of modules and accessories with which to design an environment or “space”. A set of designs linked together, designed to project stimulating and contemporary atmospheres with an open, flexible and casual configuration.
