The Salone Internazionale del Mobile held in Milan, we have presented our new collection, the Chillida Collection. This year 2012 is very special for us, we celebrate the 25th anniversary and presented the first collection of nanimarquina history that is closer to art than design.
The booth designed by the design team and Robert Pall├ş showed the seven rugs that take part of the Chillida Collection in an elegant and highlighting space.
This year nanimarquina has created Chillida Collection based on a chronological selection of his work, from Figura Humana 1948, through Dibujo Tinta 1957, to Collage 1966 that reflects the process prior to his most famous sculpture, the Peine del Viento in San Sebasti├ín.
It also includes two pictures of his famous hands from the 90s, and Gravitaci├│n, 1993 and 1994, where he creates a new form of relief, sculpture made of paper.
All this work has been accurately translated into the rugs. All of them are handmade using various techniques and different materials like wool, silk and mohair, to give texture and show the essence of his wok and provide desired value.
The booth had a display which outlined the materials and tools that are used during the manufacturing process in India and some photographs of the collection.
Finally, we would like to share a picture with Nani Marquina, CEO, Beno├«t Anicet, Operations Manager North America, and Pierre Armengaud, Commercial Director, on the stand.
We want to thank in this blog all the congratulations received by this collection and the 25 th anniversary, we are back from Milan very happy for the great acceptance of this collection that it is so special for us.
