來自西班牙的Gandia Blasco,其創始人兼設計師Jose A. Gandia是以紡織業起家,生產床單、床罩、被套為主,自1941年起,為居家空間製作高品質的純棉地毯,其時尚的款式大受市場青睞。 Gandia Blasco的設計,顛覆了地毯的傳統地位,不僅限鋪設在客廳或臥室的地面,還可以作為牆壁上的一種裝潢,成為家中一種重要的裝飾。被譽為當代最富創造力設計師之一的Patricia Urquiola也獲邀設計其地毯,Patricia擅長利用色彩與形狀的對比來凸顯產品特色,這次為Gandia Blasco所設計的地毯系列,同樣有著鮮明的色彩還配合了不同的紋理編織,以 naturales、mini 及 long sleeves 作為分類,每一種類都有各自的大小與形狀,同時也可以連貫成一張完整的地毯。Gandia Blasco充滿巧思且令人驚艷的地毯設計,也為地毯設計劃下新頁。

Gandia Blasco was born in 1941 as a family business in Valencia, basing its activity in the manufacture of blankets and traditional bedspreads. This activity was kept for more than 40 years until it was decided to give the company a strategic change in the mid 1980s. Gandia Blasco decided to re-orientate its product offer (the demand for blankets started to show the first signs of exhaustion) towards the production of carpets and later towards the production of home-textiles and furniture, with a substantial component of innovation and design. The first collection of printed and reversible cotton carpets was introduced in 1990. With the collaboration of professional designers who developed exclusive designs for Gandia Blasco, and given the qualities of the printed and reversible carpets, the introduction of the first collection had a huge impact in the market, encouraging Gandia Blasco to continue creating original designs and introducing new proposals. During the following years of activity Gandia Blasco decided to extend the product offer given the large success of the new carpets. Therefore, they developed a new line of textile products, basically duvet covers, sheets, bedspreads, fabrics and cushions. This new line kept the same philosophy which distinguished the carpet production; modern, fresh products with personality.
