GAN‘s catalog of spaces, rugs, and accessories shows us how to choose shapes, materials, and colors to make summer breezes blow at any time and in any place.
1. Indoors and outdoors too: yes to volume and modularity
Lifestyles change and boundaries are blurred all year round, making interiors want to blend in with the landscape as much as possible and exteriors become more intimate, comfortable, and multifunctional. Opting for modular furniture is a versatile solution that makes it easier to reconfigure outdoor spaces to suit the changing seasons and different uses and moments.
The irregular volumes of ISLA – a collection by Sebastian Herkner -, its cushions and low tables, offer infinite possibilities. The Menorca, Arosa, and Gomera modules create rest areas that bring out the softness and textile richness characteristic of interior spaces, with removable upholstery, technical fabrics, and quick-drying materials.
2. Brightness and balance: all in neutrals
Rugs are not only synonymous with warmth and comfort during the colder months, they can also be a source of serenity and freshness when temperatures rise.
In this idyllic Mallorcan retreat designed by SMXL studio, RODAS invades the space with calm and light thanks to its neutral tones and the natural finish of hand-woven jute. This lightweight and reversible kilim also displays its motifs, inspired by traditional wrought-iron grilles, to link the living room with the garden in this renovated farmhouse in Catalonia by architect Glòria Duran.
3. Lightness, functionality, and dynamism to fill any corner with life
Taking care of every detail to transmit a sense of wellbeing while making it pleasant to the eye and to your feet is the easiest way to feel the positive vibes of summer.
RAW, by Made Studio, is an indoor collection that shows the freshest and most casual side of wool. These fibers create a geometric weave on a rustic jute base, resulting in rugs, poufs, and pillows with which to configure spaces in direct communication with the outdoors.
Accessories such as Aram, by Oki Sato of Nendo studio, embody the advantages of surrounding ourselves with multi-faceted and portable pieces. They can function as tables or stools, at an improvised picnic or for an aperitif.
4. Beauty and sustainability, always hand in hand
Increasingly, architecture and design are integrating the reuse of waste and recycled materials. In addition to giving a second life to elements that could end up polluting the environment, recycling generates materials of great durability and resistance to conditions such as humidity, as is the case of recycled plastics.
That is why, to dress up a summer environment, it is not necessary to limit oneself to vegetable fibers. GARDEN LAYERS, by Patricia Urquiola, uses recycled PET to give shape to rugs, mats, Indian beds, rolls, cushions… These elements are superimposed in different layers and create spaces of well-being in porches, terraces, and swimming pools that are attractive and, moreover, easy to clean and maintain.
Flexible, luminous, fresh, sustainable, and with an exotic touch: these are the designs of rugs and textile spaces that can be seen in the most summery living rooms, porches, and terraces.
