084 CASSINA CARPETS
- I Contemporanei
Buying a rug used to generally mean a Persian or Caucasian rug, hand knotted, precious and sometimes expensive. Very often, the quality and origin of the rug was more important than the colour and design.
Today, demands are often orientated towards more practical choices, which nevertheless do not forgo aesthetics and design.
The Cassina selection offers a series of high quality furnishing accessories, capable of matching, enhancing and completing an interior.
The selection has been expanded and, to meet more dynamic demands, the use of natural and synthetic fibre has allowed for rugs to be made as furnishing accessories, whose woven and colour features adapt well to classic as well as modern domestic settings.
Fique is a strong, versatile fibre from Colombia and once used to make coffee sacks and agricultural yarns.
Today, the natural fibre is hand spun before being knitted on special long needles for making uniquely beautiful rugs.
Maglia, which means knit in Italian, is hence the name of the collection, which comes in five colours.
The irregular nature of the material, which is created by hand, produces a splendid and authentic pattern.
Atacama is a series of rugs made in viscose – a semi-synthetic and highly versatile fibre obtained from cellulose. The rugs have a shiny, smooth and soft appearance, like silk. The viscose brings out the surface details, absorbs and reflects the light, and the six available colour shades are enriched by variations and nuances, with luminescent colour effects.
First of all, the touch, but also the possibility to choose the colour that suits you best and to redefine shapes and sizes well beyond the limits of the ordinary.
In-Touch supports creativity and satisfies the most challenging needs. The special workmanship that gives body to colour, introduced in the Cassina collection in 2019, is now expanded with two new shapes, round and elliptical - each available in 2 sizes, both with the combination of 2 colours already in the catalogue.
Made of Tencel, one of the most environmentally friendly fibres currently on the market, obtained from easily renewable sources, thanks to a production process with low environmental impact from which we obtain soft, lightweight, and breathable yarns that are also biodegradable since cellulose derivatives.
The Tantra rug stems from the hand loom technique, in which production is carried out on a loom using entirely manual processes. Its geometric pattern, obtained by repeating a simple pattern memorized by the weaver, recalls the rigorous and accurate decorations that can be seen in many Indian temples where colour is used in a formal manner. Available in grey and blue-grey in a yarn made with a mix of viscose and recycled PET.
The Sahara rug is born from a contemporary reinterpretation of the Berber rugs of the Nomad dessert tribes on which primitive, rapid and instinctive marks have been drawn.
The intent is not decorative, but the production acquires a symbolic harmony that unites space creating a complete connection. The woolly softness of the rug becomes a welcoming place where you can sit, practice sport or observe the outside from a new point of view.
