Black on White

Black on white

Design by Javier Mariscal + Joaquim Ruiz Millet + Xano Armenter

Each new day brings a reason to create and laugh, waking to new things.

Faced with the challenge of a blank page, three creatives were invited to embody their work for a collection of rugs. A graphic and industrial designer, a painter, and a writer and gallery owner are the people behind the exclusive “Black on White” collection that showcases personal visions of contemporary rug design.

The three rugs: Estambul, Limbo & Manuscrit share a common bond, the absence of colour. The combination of black and white intensifies the identity of each piece. Each rug is a dichotomy, a horizontal canvas. A masterpiece under your feet.

Estambul

Design by Javier Mariscal

The original sketch for this rug was a watercolour painted by Mariscal in 1987. The design transmits the basic outline of the classic Persian rug. Using this concept as a starting point, the design is updated using unique patterns reminiscent of comics, synthesizing East and West, placing traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design in one product.

Manuscrit

Design by Joaquim Ruiz Millet

In 1991, Joaquim Ruiz Millet began to write a novel that he would finish 10 years later. During this 10-year gestation period, a page of the unpublished manuscript gave birth to a series of objects, such as this rug, with spindly characters that transmutes the work from hands to the feet. The original becomes the abstract…

 

Limbo

Design by Xano Armenter

Acting as homage to his memories, Armenter based his rug design on a cosmopolitan mandala. Featuring a staircase or a spiral towards the centre, the pattern is inspired by Snakes and Ladders, a game where everything depends on chance.
