The Capas collection focuses on the creation and use of layers of colors, tonality and shadow to generate intense depth while also being easy enough to blend into any environment, due to the presence of a wide range of chromatic shades.
Hahn’s starting point for the Capas collection is his notion of shadows being never black or grey but full of color and geometry. The designer’s aim was to create a simple and light rug that has a casual feel to it while being complex in the use of colors and formation of depth. In order to achieve this, nanimarquina and Hahn intensely studied the specifics of Kilim weaving techniques searching for new ways of distributing color.
