You may be reading these past two posts thinking we have lost our minds over here. Bearskin and wooden rugs?! Where has good ole' Rug Rag gone? Don't worry we're still here, just came across these incredible takes on what can be done to a rug and still have it be considered a rug.
Design student Elisa Stroyzk from Berlin, Germany has created a rug out of wood-veneer offcuts. According to Elisa "The wood is cut by hand or lasercut into pieces of different geometric
shapes. All pieces are stuck by hand on a textile base and compose a
flexible surface." The rug itself fits together and can lay out completley flat with all of the pieces fitting together perfectly. Her goal with this project was to make something that has a range "between hard and soft, parquet and carpet, blurring relationships between furniture and textiles." We'd like to congratulate her on a job well done!
