do-lo-rez rug

Design Ron Arad
100% New Zealand wool, hand tufted
Handmade by Nanimarquina

Created by Ron Arad, Do-Lo-Rez is a union of two pieces, rug and sofa, conceived as a single element. Created jointly, they form an unusual project that brings the virtual world closer to the real world. Its name comes from the expression "do low resolution". The idea came to him after seeing a pixelated image in low resolution, which has materialized into a three-dimensional surface. The rug is made by making each square a different height from the ones beside it. On the other hand, its extraordinary format involves multiple vertices that seem like the final pieces of an unfinished puzzle. This game of volume and levels gives free rein to customization.

Wool from New Zealand sheep is a natural, sustainable and biodegradable fiber. This beautiful wool is hypoallergenic, it is easy to care for, ages well and holds its color. It also minimized noise levels, while it creates a relaxing and comfortable environment.

Hand tufting is a manual weaving process that uses a pistol-shaped contraption. The rug's design is made over a taut cotton fabric and weaved with a tufting gun, which pushes and cuts sections of wool thread that are fastened to the base with a layer of latex.

Ron Arad

Hailed as one of the foremost designers of the 20th Century, Tel Aviv native Ron Arad attended the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem from 1971-73 before moving to London to study under Peter Cook, founder of Archigram, at the Architectural Association. In 1981, he scoured a scrapyard and combined a car seat with a structural tubing frame to create the postmodern Rover Chair, whose popularity significantly launched his career. Ron Arad’s unique design style would continue to use unorthodox combinations of materials and concepts. In 1994, he created the Bookworm bookshelf, a sturdy but flexible shelf that can coil or take on limitless shape. Employing bimorphic shapes from steel remained a trademark of Arad’s works.
Nanimarquina is one of the leading companies in the contemporary rugs sector. Constant development and creativity are the common denominators for the entire team of people who make up nanimarquina.
