Alejandra Gandía-Blasco has designed a warm and highly unusual collection for GAN, the indoor brand belonging to GANDIABLASCO. The idea behind the collection came about from her wish to highlight the crafts, specifically her interest in the design of delicate embroidery that her grandmother produced through her dedicated labour. Alejandra Gandía-Blasco was so fascinated with this craft that she decided to express its beauty in a hand made collection, both comfortable and original that would combine simplicity with the luxury of the hand made.
The Valentina collection consists of two pieces: a rug and a low easychair to match. Both are made using the chain-stitch method, a technique that provides greater freedom of movement and allows for an embroidered embellishment almost like a painted canvas.
Indian craftswomen bring their skill and knowledge to the task at hand and confer Valentina with style, personality and warmth; with a soul, unquestionably.
The organic shape of the rounded borders evokes the feminine form and provides an unusual and unconventional rug that avoids the rectangular cliché.
The easychair is made using a light and ergonomic structure, the result of exhaustive research, that supports two overstuffed cushions. The end result is a minimalist easychair, comfortable and inviting, for laid back relaxation at floor level.
Together the Valentina collection stands out in terms of elegance and simplicity, attention to detail ad creativity applied to craft techniques.
Its available in two sizes 170×260 cm (rug) and 75x95x70 (easychair), in beige, crimson and charcoal grey colour choices.
