Handcrafted Geometric Rugs Add Playful Illusion of Three-Dimensionality to Any Room

Twin Rugs By Spanish Architect Patricia Urquiola

Acclaimed Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola is celebrated for her eye-catching aesthetic and modern approach to interiors. Recently, she has collaborated with cc-tapis, a manufacturer of handmade rugs based in Milan, to create Visioni, a gorgeous series of unique rugs. 

Reminiscent of reimagined De Stijl masterpieces, the striking pieces—named Visioni A and Visioni B—are each formed by identical, geometric shapes and bold, black lines. The twin rugs differ only in color scheme and, even still, feature similar palettes of subdued tones and splashes of red. Each rug has an asymmetrical, abstract silhouette, giving it an undeniably avant-garde feel. The fascinating forms allude to the designer's architectural—and experimental—eye, as they play with perspective to imply a sense of three-dimensionality.

Hand-made in Nepal by Tibetan artisans, the beautiful rugs are crafted in both silk and Himalayan wool. Using this “new approach to the traditional method,” cc-tapis manufactures rugs that, like Urquiola's oeurvre, add a modern feel to a timeless art form.
