LANA MANGAS DESIGN BY PATRICIA URQUIOLA

Patricia Urquiola's Lana Mangas collection for Gan, a division of the Gandia Blasco design brand, comprises modular components that can be arranged in a variety of configurations. The range includes cross-shaped rugs that form an interlocking floor covering. A seating module with a small backrest can be combined with square and rectangular poufs to form flexible seating arrangements. The designer selected a palette of yellow, coral, pink, grey and ivory for the collection.
Gan is launching a new concept: Gan Spaces. One rug, one image, endless possibilities. The rug is the starting point, the main concept, and now you have the option to elaborate on its design by adding coordinating cushions, poufs and accessories.
The first of its kind, the Mangas collection revolutionised the rug industry. An exceptional design by a unique designer, Patricia Urquiola is now expanding the collection by presenting Mangas spaces. With the same texture and comfort of the rug collection, the spaces collection is comprised of modular components that can used interchangeably to create a multitude of different configurations. The combination of the rugs and modules will guarantee a warm and harmonious environment. Modular pieces creating different compositions and ambiences.
