A pioneer in the contemporary rug industry, G.T.DESIGN combines artisanal techniques and craftsmanship with cutting edge technology to manufacture unique and luxurious products with an unparalleled attention to detail.
For over 40 years, the Italian manufacturer has redefined textiles and the contemporary rug as an essential element of interior design. The artistic approach of Deanna Comellini, the company’s founder and creative director, adds expressive modernity to the weaving process and rug creation, as she perfectly blends nature, light and color.
G.T.DESIGN’s research into yarns evolved from sustainable fibers such as hemp and jute to hand-weaving of technological and high-performance yarns, combined with a constant drive to explore the design process, ranging from new weaving systems, to hand painting methods, and digital printing.
Some exciting industry breakthroughs are the Coconutrug, the first patented contemporary rug made with precious coconut fiber, and Kama, made in viscose and among the company’s bestselling products, still incomparable in terms of sheen and color depth.
Founded in 1977 in Bologna by Deanna Comellini, G.T.DESIGN collaborates with the finest brands in the design industry and fully supports interior designers and architects in their projects in creating custom designed spaces with a completely new perspective.
“The Contemporary Rug Manifesto”
“The original rug is the ground we were born onto. It reflects who we are. It is the first element in creating an intimate and domestic atmosphere. It carries the scent, the habits, the poetry of a home. The rug is an archaic symbol that G.T.DESIGN has transformed into something contemporary, familiar, a homely symbolism that defines the boundaries of personal space.”
