While enjoying lots of coffee and different delicious Spanish specialities we discovered the artisan manufacturing and history of the brand through some beautiful video’s.
In the basement we could choose one of the carpets from the Mélange collection and there was a cupboard full of props. I choose for a striped carpet in natural white, black and a little red, which are next to the colour green the main colours of this collection designed by Sybilla.
Inspired by the video’s I set up a little still life using natural and handcrafted props only using thewhite wall and the in my eyes perfect lines with the concrete floor of the basement entrance as a backdrop.
All collections can be seen on the nanimarquina website where you’ll also find lots of background information about the designers and links to the making of video’s.
I particularly loved the video directed by Maite Felices where Nipa Doshi of London based design studio Doshi Levien talks about her Rabari collection, embroidered rugs handmade in India and one of my favourites seen in the showroom. Nani also gave us a a personal gift from the Mélange collection and I have a beautiful spot in mind already that I can’t wait to show you, thank you Nani!
