Created by the versatile and authentic Japanese artist Michael Lin, Formosa evokes the name 16th-century Portuguese sailors gave to the island of Taiwan The Area Rug's delicate and attractive style combines Pop aesthetics with Taiwanese pictorial tradition. Following this tradition, it took three years of meticulous work to reproduce the subtle use of color on wool that is characteristic of Lin, who specializes in transforming large, cold and bland spaces into luminous organic fields of intense shades. The type of knot used to make this Area Rug makes it 40% denser than other hand-knotted Area Rugs, and consequently, it has more weight and better quality.

About the Designer
Michael Lin Taiwan
He graduated from the Fine Art Department of The Design Center in Pasadena, California. After returning in 1993 to Taiwan, he developed his work as an artist working with the artist collective IT Park. During the following nine years in Taiwan he developed what will go on to define the core of his artistic concerns, a reflection on Asian tradition, ornamentation and architecture, and the practice of art and life. Since 1999 he has been invited to exhibit his work internationally, for example, The Fukuoka Asian Art Triennial ('99), The Venice Biennial ('01), and The International 2002, Liverpool Biennial. He was a resident at the Cite International des Arts in Paris from 2002-03 and has since exhibited extensively in Europe, in institutions as Palais de Tokyo, the inaugural exhibition ('02), Kunstmuseum, Luzern ('03), and Kunsthalle Wien ('05). Along with his exhibitions he also has been invited to make public commissions worldwide. Michael Lin's public works can be seen at the 21st Century Museum of Contemporary art, Kanazawa, Japan, Kunstlinie Theater/Art Center, Almere, The Netherlands, Rogaland School of Art, Stavanger, Norway, L'ecole des Cigales, Beausoleil, France, and most recently inaugurated, June '08, a mural at the Pierre De Geyterstraat, for the City of Gent, Belgium.
About the Manufacturer
The history of nanimarquina is based on a very clear idea: wanting to design rugs. It’s a simple statement, a transparent declaration of intent that has become a reality by putting into practice values such as observation, innovative endeavour, communication, emotion and knowing how to contemporise traditional craftsmanship.
Since its origins in 1987, nanimarquina has been designing rugs and other textile products, paying particular attention to research on raw materials and production processes. These factors enrich the aesthetic aspect of their products, which are the true stars that give the brand its visibility and commercial success.
Today nanimarquina is one of the leading rug manufacturing firms, exporting 60% of its production. With the second generation now forming part of the management, the company continues to make, live and offer design. They continues to make the principle on which nanimarquina was founded a reality: to reinvent the rug, giving it new uses, new concepts and playing with elements such as shape, colour and texture.
