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.

GAN

GAN is an internationally respected and revered rug company, representing an innovative and contemporary outlook on original textile production.

In the 1940s, GAN carried out a respectful revision of traditions and manual work, leading to the extraordinary evolution of crafts worldwide.
This process has materialised over time into a series of collections of great value in terms of design, research, development, and even business ethics.
GAN rugs are handmade by expert artisans using traditional techniques that have been renewed and updated thanks to the creativity of internationally renowned designers, including Patricia Urquiola, Kengo Kuma and Kensaku Oshiro. This has resulted in many international design awards and ongoing recognition as a leader in the sector.
Its application to modular structures and accessories, which allow the user to create complete spaces, has also given rise to new concepts of habitability in contemporary spaces.
