Coming around a corner we saw this huge knit celebration of a rug designed by Patricia Urquoia. Since we're on the lookout for the rise of all things knit in 2009, we thought this was a great application and a cool idea as well: there are four basic rugs that can be put together in a number of different combinations.

"Gandia Blasco's rug brand, presents the new collaboration by Patricia Urquiola for us: MANGAS.
MANGAS (engl. SLEEVES) is based on patchwork of different wool knits, to create a collection of various typologies with different shapes, going from Manga corta (short sleeve) to Manga de campana (bell-shaped sleeve). The result is a series of eight special carpets, full of nuances, due to their variety of textures and colors."
