Reuse, reduce, recycle. The flexible tubes of bicycles tires from India intertwine to create textures.

A conceptual rug, sustainable, and unprecedented, made from 100% recycled material, ideal for indoors and outdoors. Each piece is created with 130 to 140 bicycle tubes collected and manipulated in India. In addition to raising awareness of recycled products, Bicicleta also represents a transgressive aesthetic for the most avant-garde spaces.

Curiosity and research regarding recycled rubber to create new textures was the driving force behind this project. The solution appeared during a trip to India: inner tubes from bicycle tires, their most common mode of transportation.

Elena Marquina, known as Nani Marquina, was born in Barcelona in 1952. After studying Industrial Design at the Massana school there, she started to work with the architects Sellés-Marquina in 1973. In 1984, she made her first carpets, and decided to devote herself to design and set up her company, Nanimarquina, two years later. In 1988, some of her creations were already being exported to Germany and Japan. A year later, one of her collections was selected for the shop at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Since 2006 Nani Marquina has been president of the ADP (Professional Designers' Association).
