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, allowing for a varied experience from different distances.

Three-dimensionality and the illusion of depth were achieved with just three colours. It was a conscious effort to limit the number of colours for adaptability and flexibility. 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.

Colour gradient was avoided for ease of production, hence the design relies on solid blocks of colour to provide sufficient depth cues.

    Amazing designing of your Folded Tones. I like that you say “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 colors that may jar with a particular space.”
