mangas original globo rug
The development of Mangas Original took four years of research, in which GAN had to find the tools and create the complex work method that allows the weaving of these pieces on a manual loom, despite their changing textures, threads, and widths.
Patricia Urquiola took as aesthetic reference the classic knitted wool sweater, to design a collection with lots of volume that could combine different textures. Some rug models have a very elongated shape and large dimensions, others are of medium or small size. All of them can be combined as if they were modular pieces. In addition, they can also be hung on the wall as a tapestry, and in the case of larger pieces, some can cover part of the floor and the wall at the same time.
This is the Globo rug from the Mangas Original collection, an original balloon-shaped piece that includes nine different textures and designs, arranged as stripes. Each one is made with different shades of wool and techniques.
