In a further step along her path as a producer and creator of her own products, Portuguese designer Maria Figueiredo has delved into the world of rugs with various designs that can be combined together. Spot colours and abstract shapes make for a quality product.
In 2016 Norwegian designer Martin Solen took part in a design contest to be presented at the Milan Fair, for which he created two products based off the same concept: a chair and a textile to go with it. The textile digitally recreates granite, a material formed of various minerals, and present in traditional pieces. The seat is a modern update of the benches and chairs of the mountain cabins.
