Rugs are inherently flat, the goal was to challenge this simple fact. The illusion of three-dimensionality was achieved with just three colours. The variety of tones and depth of the rug is dependent on the width and density of the stripes, rather than a large palette of colours that may jar with a particular space, thus allowing for flexible use. From above or far away, the rug resembles a folded sheet. However, while sitting or lying on it, the illusion of the folds may not be perceptible. This lead to the use of simple repetitive lines that can be enjoyed as an abstract pattern up close.
