nao tamura is known for drawing on the organic shapes and patterns found in nature to inform her work, as evidenced her ‘ring’ stool for artek, and ‘seasons’ serving plate for COVA and MoMA. the new york-based, japanese creative’s ‘quill’ carpet for nanimarquina is no different. expressing the delicacy of a single, fallen feather, or the playfulness of multiple ones gathered together, each piece reveals something different. the ‘quill’ rugs are handmade, meaning that no two are alike — just as in nature. the design evokes soft and subtle color variations that bring a bit of the outdoors inside.
