Nodus rugs, owned by Italian Interior designers Il Piccolo, are unlike traditional area rugs in many ways. Each carpet is designed by today’s most innovative artists and designers and produced as a unique piece, entirely made by hand.
New Nodus High Design Rugs
These new whimsical, colorful and stylish rugs for Nodus come from the likes of such hot design studios and artists as Studio Job, Nendo, Matali Crassat, Sam Baron, Kiki Van Eijk, Maarten Bass, Nika Zupanc and more.
The unique pieces are promoted through events and publications in order to spread the knowledge to all about the new shapes and forms of a home staple that has accompanied man since antiquity.
Craftsmanship: Il Piccolo has selected from the best producers in six countries of the world (Nepal, Pakistan, India, Turkmenistan, China and Turkey) visiting them one by one, verifying materials, techniques, expert craftsmen and ethical production.
Each carpet from Nodus will be a unique piece, entirely made by hand, even including the packaging.
The result is a collection of 60 carpets that outlines a new horizon of shapes and colours, a collection that unhinges borders and goes beyond the hand of reason.
The spirit of the carpets is captured in dynamic and organic forms, like putting together a puzzle, assumes irregular profiles or takes inspiration from contemporary and everyday products such as fabrics, tablecloths, books and maps.
All the rules are torn up, except one: The hand weaving, knot by knot.
These unique works of art on which to walk when entering the spaces of daily life and highly valued by families are displayed in the Il Piccolo showroom, in the centre of Milan.
Whether you purchase or only appreciate the quality of a piece from Nodus, you can be assured that the carpet has been produced with the utmost respect, first and foremost for human rights, and the right to good working conditions and fair compensation.
The guarantee is from Rugmark, the international foundation that for 14 years has been working to end the exploitation of child labour, and rigorously inspects the manufacturing process every 3 months.
