Made by Mariantonia Urru, 2019
Material Wool and Silk
Inspired by ARPAE, the Regional Agency for Environment and Energy, Ferrara, Italy
“What a fantastic paternity that of trees, which are able to give to each of their branches a path towards the light.”
The Flora rug draws inspiration from the ARPAE Regional Agency for Prevention, Environment and Energy, a building complex that meets the highest architectural and environmental standards.
Mariantonia Urru created this rug using the pibiones technique, which consists in twisting thick yarn around the needles on the loom to create the raised effect of the grains that remind the shape of grapes (pibiones in Sardinian).
