Goz by GAN Rugs
Designed by Kengo Kuma
Woven Wood to feel nature
Embrace the Japanese lifestyle and walk barefoot on Goz to feel its texture and connect with its natural materials. Remember to be careful: to prevent the wooden rods from breaking, these rugs should not be bent, twisted, or subjected to strong pressure.
Composed of three rugs, Tsuchi, Kiri and Amem terms for fog, rain, and soil in Japanese, the collection extols the genuine beauty of handmade objects and focuses on the coexistence of materials in nature.
On a manual loom, expert craftsmen insert teak wood rods —circular, semicircular, or square in section— into a framework of un-dyed virgin wool.
Colours: Kiri light grey, Ame Beige and Tsuchi Brown
