Nanimarquina Sale: Select Rugs 20% Off
By Scott Reilly
7/7/2017 2:57:00 PM  

 

Nanimarquina and Switch Modern are having a summer 20% off sale thru July 31 on select rug styles that are in the process of being discontinued including Antique in all colorways and sizes, Eduardo Chillida’s Manos 1995, Losanges III designed by Ronan + Erwan Bouroullec, and Rabari 3 and Rabari 4 designed by Nipa Doshi + Jonathan Levien. The price noted for each style and size represents a 20% discount while quantities last. As always, free shipping applies to all Nanimarquina rug purchases. Similarly, if you are located outside of Georgia, there is no sales tax. Need to see a physical example in person? Switch Modern is happy to arrange for a sample of any of Nanimarquina rug to be sent to you.

 

Two aspects of the Antique rug collection really stand out… its vintage look coupled with the innovative artisan technique that was especially created to enable the production of this rug.  As its name suggests, the design was inspired by antique rugs – its neutral colors and floral patterns will add warmth to any room. The hand-knotted sumac weaving technique used in this collection is the result of countless hours of work underscored by the imagination of its Indian weavers. Knot by knot, a thin braid is created that provides each rug’s distressed look. Composed of 100% hand-woven New Zealand wool. Antique is available in three colorways – Antique 1, Antique 2, and Antique 3 – each version is available in two sizes.

 

With their Losanges collection, the Bouroullec brothers continue their study of simplicity and elegance, reinterpreting the traditional Persian rug by using ancient kilim techniques. Technically complex, the Losanges collection requires great skill due to its sophisticated combination of colors within its atypical geometrical rhombic form. In addition to the plethora of handcraft techniques involved, the Afghan wool used in Losanges is also spun by hand in order to achieve the sophisticated color hues that ultimately make each rhombus different and each rug unique.

 

Celebrating 20th century artist Eduardo Chillida’s ouevre, Nanimarquina has created a rug collection based upon a chronological selection of his artist’s work – Figura Humana (1948), Dibujo Tinta (1957), and Collage (1966) – pieces that reflect the gestation process of his renowned sculpture, Peine del Viento, located in San Sebastián. The collection also includes two depictions of his much celebrated depictions of hands – Mano and Manos from the 1990s, as well as Gravitación from 1993 and 1994. Noted here is Manos 1995. This hand-knotted rug is composed of 100% hand-spun New Zealand wool.

 

Left photo: Rabari 4 rug with inset detail. Right photo: Rabari 3 rug with inset detail. Rabari is an outstanding design – indeed, each becomes a canvas on which Nipa Doshi and Jonathan Levien have designed a refined combination of rhythms with a unique graphic sensuality. According to Levien, “We decided to create a series of rugs that evoke the sensual and shiny world of tribal folk embroidery of India. We wanted our collection for nanimarquina to reference the unfinished embroideries like studies of different techniques in progress, as they gradually emerge over time. The spontaneous compositions of the rugs embody the serendipity and freedom to improvise inherent in each step of a handmade piece. Joyful, irreverent and unique.” Each Rabari rug is composed of hand-knotted, hand-woven 100% New Zealand wool.

Alessi Forma Cheese Grater
By Scott Reilly
5/22/2017 7:49:00 AM  

 

Left photo: The Forma cheese grater designed by Zaha Hadid for Alessi’s 2017 Spring/Summer Collection. Right photo: Detail of each side of the removable polished stainless steel grater. The cradle and grater become a fabulously enigmatic sculpture for any surface.

Referred to as the “queen of the curve,” Zaha Hadid’s architectural designs were infused with an eye-popping expressiveness the likes of which had no historic aesthetic precedent. Known for her statement sculptural buildings around the world, she had collaborated with a few manufacturing firms to create home furnishings objects – Sawaya & Moroni, B&B Italia, Established & Sons, Alessi – her projects with the latter produced several objects yet left two projects in development with her unexpected passing last year. According to Alberto Alessi, “the first is this cheese grater, which is so beautifully ‘Hadidian’ as to not require comment.” We absolutely agree! It’s like a small piece of architecture for the table. Hadid’s Forma cheese grater was inspired by the natural formation of pebbles eroded by the water and sand. It features a polished stainless grater that rests within a base cradle composed of matte black melamine. Its asymmetrical arrangement of holes is not only visually engaging, it allows the cheese to be grated and sprinkled unevenly providing an atypical texture to any dish.

 

Left photo: The Forma cheese grater cradles a chunk of parmesan cheese; simply remove the stainless portion to grate cheese and sprinkle cheese directly over a dish. Right photo: Portrait of Zaha Hadid (credit: Alessi)

The Forma cheese grater is one of several new exciting designs that are part of Alessi’s 2017 Spring/Summer Collection. Switch Modern has recently created a new section of our website that now highlights Alessi’s seasonal collections. We have already received several of these 2017 designs and are still awaiting others. And, remember… all of these new pieces are included in our 20% off Alessi Sale – a great opportunity to reserve yours now and lock into the special sale price.
