You didn't make it to Salone del Mobile 2018? Never mind! Stylepark brings you the impressions of the trade fair and the showrooms in Milan on your monitor.
With the desire to transfer the experience and knowledge of the textile world to a three-dimensional element, nanimarquina adds the Kilim Poufs Collection to the brand’s catalogue. The architect and designer Marcos Catalán proposes a light, versatile, and user-friendly version of the classic home accessory that combines perfectly with the brand's products.
Aiming to transfer the warmth of the rug to other decorative elements has led to the creation of cylindrical poufs filled with flame-retardant padding inside a birch base, fully upholstered with geometric Kilims.
Perfect to combine with block-coloured nanimarquina rugs, this decorative accessory adds a touch of colour to different rooms in your home. Choose between the two neutral models or, on the contrary, two colourful models to find the ideal chromatic balance at all times.
The starting point of this product came about in 2015, when Marcos Catalán was commissioned to design the cafeteria of the Disseny Hub, the Design Museum of Barcelona. "The two large sofas, fully upholstered, that act as parentheses, are the main protagonists of the space, bringing colour and warmth to the cafeteria. Instead of covering the floor, the rugs give shape to the seats, transferring the comfort of the domestic environment to the new public space of the cafeteria. The designer created the poufs we see today as complementary seating to the large sofas, and are now included in the nanimarquina catalogue.
