NOTHING TO HIDE RUG
Based on the expression “sweep under the rug”, used in situations where people want to hide something negative from the others, a new rug concept was created. The rug “Nothing to Hide” uses this expression in a positive way, creating a surprising effect by the colour hidden behind. At the same time, it shows that there is nothing underneath, there is nothing to hide.

By using a visual illusion of a fold, its possible to create unexpected colour combinations. The resulting edge transforms the standard circular shape and allows the rug to be placed both in a center position of a space and where a straight edge is needed.
