The original sketch for this rug was a watercolour painted by Mariscal in 1987. The design transmits the basic outline of the classic Persian rug. Using this concept as a starting point, the design is updated using unique patterns reminiscent of comics, synthesizing East and West, placing traditional craftsmanship and contemporary design in one product.
In 2000 Estudio Mariscal produced the Diseño Gráfico set published by Salvat. This editorial project in 45 parts ventures into the graphic design profession uniting concepts and the different attitudes of its cutting edge designers. Javier Mariscal has never abandoned the more artistic side of his career and his work has been displayed in numerous solo and group exhibitions throughout the years. He gives conferences in different countries, and shows his work and explains his professional experience to students of various disciplines.
