    Global Warming Rug
    Home  /  Design
    Barcelona-based rug company, Nanimaquina, along with Mexican design collective, NEL, will showcase their latest offering, A Global Warming Rug, at this year's International Furniture Festival in Valencia, Spain (23rd-27th Sept. 08). ('global warming rug' designed by NEL, produced by nanimarquina - hand tufted , 100% wool New zealand + felt bear)
    'traditionally carpets have been tools to communicate a culture's messages. at nanimarquina we want to continue this practice. and so we have come up with our global warming collection as a platform for communication. the mexican design collective, NEL, found us a way to carry out such a project, a way of spreading a clear message: an invitation to reflect on the contemporary world around us. the name says it all: global warming. the loneliness of a small polar bear surrounded by nothing communicates the urgency of the message. the global warming rug is a proposition of hope; the potential for a better future, a possible world.' - nanimarquina
