Patricia Urquiola designed the Bandas collection for the rug company’s new concept Gan Spaces, in which the floor coverings are also used to upholster furniture and accessories.


“Using a single set, you can change the use and appearance of your space as many times as you like,” said a statement from Gan.


The long, thin wool rugs are patterned with large stitches that form grids across the surfaces. Even chunkier lines in different colours add further details to the designs.Background colours including light grey, faded pink, cream and black are used in different combinations with orange, yellow and blue patterns. (source :
