Go rock rug

2016

 

Inspired by the straw woven plate at the flea market, the pattern and the nature is a simple and honest material that attracted me strongly straight away. The technique which is centuries old is still compelling today, though it needs modern translation. As we know, straw is so cheap and therefore low value. Only if the material is woven by excellent technique, it becomes an art piece and valuable. It is unfortunate that people seldom use the kind of cheap but good quality material in modern product design. So the idea is to enhance the value of straw via design.

 

With different colour and arrangement, the carpet shows the beauty of modern craft. The concept is not to use complex and challenging technique, but present the best order to enhance the value of the material.
