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.
Elisa Padrón (Canarias, 1984) and her special sensibility for product design, makes even the most complex creative process simple.
Her intuitive and passionate approach leads her to experience craftsmanship in the first person: researching, experimenting with her hands, and comprehensively understanding different techniques, however traditional they may be.
With a tireless attention to detail, Elisa displays a keen knowledge of colour while highlighting the beauty of simplicity. She directs the in-house design team at nanimarquina, creating her own collections as well as accompanying external designers throughout their development process.
