Colourful Rug Designs by Patricia Urquiola

WORDS Lindi Brownell Meiring IMAGES

Award-winning Spanish designer Patricia Urquiola’s colourful rugs for Italian contemporary rug brand cc-tapis are a celebration of geometric patterns.

Made up of two designs, entitled Rotazioni and Visioni (which was first launched in 2016 before the addition of last year’s new colourways), the Himalayan wool rugs are all hand-knotted by artisans in Nepal.

The geometric designs featured on Visioni’s rugs, which are available in four variations, has an enchanting 3D effect, as do the tubular-like designs seen in the Rotazioni collection. According to Patricia’s website, “Rotazioni plays on the repetition of cylindrical shapes superimposed, which emphasise the circle as a matrix of the drawing.”
