Surface area: Downtown Design

Illulian will bring their top seller and debut their new contemporary masterpieces.

The 'Please Wait'and 'Raw' rugs

Milan-based Illulian will make their mark at the sixth edition of Downtown Design, presenting a carefully selected roster of rugs among its best sellers and new entries at the Middle East’s leading contemporary design fair in Dubai Design District (13- 16 November).

Rugs on display will include:

The Please Wait rug by Luca Nichetto from Limited Edition (2018): a colourful tribute to the online image research, intended as the time elapsing between the single query and Google’s response, which displays a series of coloured boxes before elaborating the full images. The rug is a representation of that fleeting moment whose colour combination varies according to the country of research. More specifically it refers to the distinctive palette resulting from the research of every renowned carpet manufacturer country.

The RAW rug from Design Collection (2018): new aesthetic codes celebrate the unfinished, rough surfaces and essential character. A rug with a worn look and the irresistible charm of the “uncompleted” style.

All the rugs by Illulian are knotted and carded by hand and can be made in two quality levels: Platinum 120, the most exclusive line is characterized by the use of top quality wool and silk and the extremely complex handcrafted process – with a stunning 180,000 knots/m2 – that creates spectacular sculpted effects. Gold 100 proposes rugs made from wool and silk, with a timeless charm and a density of 150,000 knots/m2.
