nanimarquina Capas Rug
Nani Marquina Capas Rug by Mathias Hahn
With layers of colors, tonality and shadow that generate intense depth, the Capas Collection features a wide range of chromatic shades, allowing it to blend beautifully and seamlessly into an interior living space.
Hahn’s starting point for the Capas collection was his notion of shadows being never black or grey but full of color and geometry. His aim was to create a simple and light rug that has a casual feel to it while being complex in the use of colors and formation of depth. In order to achieve this, nanimarquina and Hahn intensely studied the specifics of Kilim weaving techniques searching for new ways of distributing color.
After months of investigation, nanimarquina and Hahn developed a new type of loose Kilim structure which allows mixing the colors of the warp and weft. Normally, warp is not visible in a Kilim. By defining a different density of warp new tonalities surfaced, providing a visual texture where colors intertwine with each other along the carpet. The unique texture creates a dark-and-light effect and great profundity without becoming heavy. Like the layers of air in the atmosphere that reflect light and cast shadow.
“By loosening the fibres and using a thicker warp, we made new colors and textures visible, celebrating greater depth and enhanced tones.” – Mathias Hahn.
