ROOTS is the result of the collaboration of two creative visions predestined to meet. Inma Bermúdez shares with GAN not just her predilection for accessible and functional pieces, but also her Mediterranean roots. These origins are what inspired the four kilim models that make up the ROOTS collection, made with jute weft and cotton warp. A completely natural creation that is not at odds with either sobriety or sensory warmth.
In each of its versions, the shape of the square creates a pattern that is repeated at different scales and rhythms to represent a fabric, a material or a slight variation in color –always within the natural tones of the jute material: ochre, beige or brown-. This series also includes two stools: a single and a double, both as attractive as they are comfortable. They are also woven with cotton and jute, and their structure is made of acacia wood –popularly known as the babool tree. They are, like the rugs, produced in India. With two different options to match the rugs in the collection, the ROOTS stools evoke traditional cottage like low chairs and reinterpret the traditional design based on exceptional manufacturing and modern proportions.
GAN has drawn on the logical and rational vision of Inma Bermúdez to create a collection of contemporary craftsmanship that praises the laborious work of the weavers and embodies a necessary return to the essential. The kilims are available in four sizes: 96×144 cm (3’8”x5’7”), 96×240 cm (3’8”x9’4”), 192×240 cm (7’6”x9’4”), and 240×288 (9’4”x11’3”). The dimensions of the stools are 46x46x40h cm (1’8”x1’8”x1’5”) for the single and 82x46x40h cm (3’2”x1’8”x1’5”) for the double. As with many other GAN collections, the ROOTS series is made entirely by hand.
