GARDEN LAYERS, the first outdoor adventure within the unique GAN Spaces concept, is a collection of rugs, mats, roll pillows and cushions that can be arranged in many different ways, creating infinite possibilities for outdoor living.
There are artists who know no boundaries and there are journeys that change everything.
Patricia Urquiola travelled to India, where she was captivated by the delicacy and harmony of Mughal architecture she found there. Gardens, terraces and miniatures ignited her restless imagination, inspiring a new collection which,from the very first moment, she intended for gardens and outdoor spaces.
The Oriental influence in GARDEN LAYERS is obvious in the way it invites you to lie back, relax and be comfortable on its rugs and mats, among roll pillows and sumptuous cushions. It is also evident in its fringes, its beautiful finishes and in the geometry of its motifs
Once again Urquiola demonstrates her masterly design skills, her creativity in interpreting other worlds and her genius in bringing them to us in her exquisite, unique language.

GAN is the indoor brand of GANDIABLASCO, and its starting point… In the late 80s, José Gandia-Blasco, president of the company, reinvented a family business that had been around for four decades. Faithful to the firm’s origins, José developed new lines of home textiles, betting big on design and incorporating the world of rugs to the offering. This is how the original GAN was born.

- Patricia Urquiola
Patricia Urquiola studied architecture at Madrid Polytechnic and Milan Polytechnic, graduating in 1989 with Archille Castiglioni as her metor. She was then given the position of being an assistant lecturer to Castiglioni and Eugenio Bettinelli in Mlan and Paris. Her designs are unconventional, emphatic, and experimental, blending humanist sensibilities and technical expertise – qualities that also inform her work as an architect. The Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Barcelona is one of her many architectural projects.
She was responsible for the new product development office of DePadova and worked with Vico Magistretti as head of Lissoni Associati's design group. In 2001, she opened her own studio and started designing for some of the most important Italian and international companies around the world. She has since been awarded the Gold Medal of fine arts by the Spanish Government and been declared "Designer of the decade" in the German magazines "Home" and "Hauser".
