HOLE Rug collection – False Impressions Design Alain Gilles for YO² Rugs (Cyprus)

The Hole collection plays with perception and perspective and gives the impression of an opening, a gateway to somewhere else. It is very much a modern “trompe l’oeil”.

It is created by combining two separate elements: a grid composed of hand sketched lines, and a round graphic element which from certain angles gives the impression of an opening in the ground.

The grid illustrates the idea of a floor. As for the graphic representation of the hole, it appears as almost disconnected from the grid, as if it were a loose graphic element that had been placed there by accident or could be moved somewhere else. As a matter of fact, a specific rounder version of the rugs gives the possibility to play with the “hole” and to place it anywhere in a room.

This collection of rugs is of course also a reference to a surreal world and to a more playful, cartoonish world.

Materials:  Printed rugs on tufted Polyamide.
