Charlotte Lancelot has created three new color combinations for her popular collection of Diamond kilim rugs for GAN of recycled fibers from plastic materials.
Ecology, aesthetics, modernization of ancient techniques, and improvements in living conditions are Charlotte Lancelot’s main concerns. Her design is characterized by an emotional attachment to the objects around her.
The designer born in Brussels in 1980 has created three new color combinations for her popular collection of Diamond kilim rugs for GAN – Gandia Blasco Group brand dedicated to making handmade rugs, poufs, and accessories – made of recycled fibers from plastic materials.
Diamond’s octagonal shape is inspired by the geometry of the diamond, a universal symbol of strength and beauty, to which its facets and hypnotic figure bring new meaning.
The fibers with which Diamond kilim rugs are crafted by hand go through a meticulous treatment and regeneration process that lengthens the useful life of the existing plastic. This gives them a new purpose (upcycling) and turns them into a piece of contemporary design that is also easy to clean and maintain.
Diamond, with its perceived transparencies and gradients, is now introduced in more natural tones, such as Blue-Brown, Green-Grey, and Orange-Wine. The new options join the existing colorways: Pink-Yellow, Nude-Petrol, and Blue-Green.
These rugs, suitable for outdoor and indoor spaces thanks to their 100% recycled PET composition, are available in three sizes: 170×220 cm / 5’7”x7’3”, 200×260 cm / 6’7”x8’6” and 300×390 cm / 9’10”x12’10”.
