Scottish designer Scott Jarvie, has created the Void Rug, a 100% merino wool floor rug that when placed on the floor and viewed from a certain angle, it gives an illusion of depth.
Scott explains, “The design was inspired by the notion that the design of a 2 dimensional rug could be informed by a 3 dimensional approach, where there was more thought embedded in the design than simply the surface pattern. The illusion of depth is achieved by careful consideration of perspective, light and texture.”
The rug designs are a simple geometric patterns in a circle and a rectangle, and appear as just that unless viewed from a particular aspect, and then the rugs become a perilous void in the floor.
