Rug,Nanimarquina,Formosa,Michael Lin,2009. Handmade rug (100% wool new zealand) Tecnique Hand Knotted available in two sizes:170×240 or 300×200, height mm 15. The striking new nanimarquina collection is based on genuine pictorial works by the recognised contemporary artist Michael Lin. Formosa, recalling the old name given by Portuguese navigators to the island of Taiwan in the 16th century, strives to transfer the painter’s concept to a carpet you can take it into your home. Lin is a specialist in transforming vast, cold and anodyne spaces into organic fields of intense colours and behind the collection lie three years of meticulous work to reproduce his subtle use of colour on wool. Formosa brings you closer to his unmistakeable floral compositions on a small scale.
