Guided by a passion for design and thanks to a long history in private and public projects, nanimarquina has become an international reference in contemporary rugs and interior design.
Design has always been present in a special way in the Marquina family home. Rafael Marquina, Nani’s father and creator of the famous Marquina oil cruet with which he garnered the 1st FAD Award in 1961, was among the design pioneers in Spain. This made a deep impression on Nani, determined from a young age to follow in the footsteps of her father and strengthen the family gift: to create.
As a designer Emmanuel works between Paris and Milan where he worked for seven years with Antonio Citterio. His creations, definitely contemporary, look alike in their search for harmony and simplicity in solving shape, function, meaning, materials, cultural aspect and contemporary signs.
