The symmetry of the pattern and the contrasts between the backgrounds and the drawing bestow depth to the carpet Labirinto, designed by Gio Ponti. All the Gio Ponti carpets are a collection both elegant and refined, with contemporary rugs that play on sometimes lighter or more pronounced features, on blurred contrasts or hints of very bright colors, and on simple geometries that convey a sense of three-dimensionality and depth to the carpet.
