IMM Cologne 2018: KETTAL, POINT, VONDOM and GAN in Pure Editions 2.2 and 3.2

The choice of products offered by Spain’ s major labels is quite wide and includes dining sets, lounge furniture and new furnishing concepts signed by the best names of the international design scene: Patricia Urquiola, the Bouroullecs, Doshi Levien, Hella Jongerious, Jasper Morrison, Karim Rashid, Fabio Novembre, Eugeni Quitllet, just to name a few. Suitable for home and contract use, the indoor and outdoor furniture collections on display in Spanish stand introduce new holistic design concepts, demonstrating the versatility and adaptability of products to any type of project.

GAN. Craftsmanship & Design

Founded in 2008, GAN is the textile brand of outdoor furniture manufacturer GANDIA BLASCO. At the time, the challenge was risky as it was about injecting contemporary design into a still very traditional industry. Nevertheless, it has proved a success as today GAN is an internationally recognized brand with a presence in the world’s major cities.

What defines and sets GAN apart is their appreciation for products made by hand, gently, piece by piece. All the products are made by experienced craftsmen who use natural fibres: cotton, linen, jute, silk, and wool. Based on an innovative design concept, the GAN rugs are not merely decorative objects. Instead, they become a system of shapes and volumes that redefine the concept of habitability.

At the IMM Cologne they will exhibit a selection of their GAN spaces, an original and unique concept, in which the design and colours of a rug are reproduced over ottomans, seating modules and accessories, creating a coherent and personalized living space (MANGAS space, BANDAS space, CANEVAS space), plus two new launches:

KILIM Collection. PARQUET rugs by FRONT. Created by the Swedish studio FRONT, PARQUET embraces GAN’s philosophy of integrating traditional and new elements with Scandinavian simplicity.



Anna Lindgren and Sofia Lagerkvist have expertly combined the patterns and geometries of traditional flooring with new shapes and colours, creating rugs that feature a three-dimensional matrix, accentuated by their irregular shapes. The three models of reversible kilims - Tetragon, Rhomb and Hexagon - are made by skilled craftsmen from pure new wool in manual looms.



GAN Spaces. GARDEN LAYERS by Patricia Urquiola. GARDEN LAYERS, GAN’s first Outdoor Space, is an innovative proposal conceived by designer Patricia Urquiola that brings style and comfort to terraces, pools, beaches and other outdoor spaces. They break the boundaries between indoor and outdoor because they move into the open air the integration of tones, textures and patterns that normally can be found in indoor products.

Made of particularly resistant high-tech fabrics and a quick-dry foam filling, the rugs, mats, roll pillows and cushions that can be arranged in many different ways, creating infinite possibilities for outdoor living. The collection is available in three colour options: Terracotta, Green and Blue.
