Modularity For All Surfaces

Patricia Urquiola has designed a new line for Spanish textile brand Gan.  Introduced at maison-objet 2013 in Paris, these modular components are all you need to create a flexible room setting. Simple in concept, these handmade tapestry designs in a lovely nubby textural palette of pinks, grays and yellow, can be used on any or all surfaces of a room. Woven of the same cloth, whether a wall hung tapestry, upholstery for the fabulous Pouff’s, or a floor mat, each dynamic element can be configured to interact and play off one another. To me, it suggests redesign. A system of interchangeable parts arranged to suit the activity of the moment. The opportunity to design a room everyday?  Doesn’t get any better than that.
