Bandas Collection
Patricia Urquiola Friday 13 Mar 2015

The new Bandas collection by Gan, Gandiablasco’s indoor brand, is the result of the search for unique items of interior furniture inspired by the genius of Patricia Urquiola and made by hand by craftswomen and men in India.

In a small village in India characterised by abandoned shops and a high rate of unemployment this craft based project brought new life back to the community. The optimum solution was reached by adapting the manufacturing concept behind the production of carpets to the possibilities and conditions of this community.

Suitable for the floor or covering poufs, chairs, chaise longues and cushions its design incorporates Velcro side straps that facilitate joining or changing the pieces, easily updating interior décors as required.
“This collection consists of a series of juxtapositions, easy to use and the presentation of interchangeable embroidered strips is an innovative idea,” explains the Spanish designer based in Italy. Urquiola’s innovative and original style is reflected in the patterns of every carpet: braided and thick geometric textures embroidered by hand.

Background colours include light grey, cream, pale pink and black, contrasting with the vibrant colours of the embroidery, blue, orange and yellow as well as warm tones such as beige and dark brown. More than simply a carpet, item of furniture or decorative accessory, Bandas represents exclusive design, quality craftsmanship and modularity without limit.
