Milan 2014: Dune by Hanna Emelie Ernsting & Sarah Böttger

This week at the Salone Satellite German designers Hanna Emelie Ernsting & Sarah Böttger presented a new quilted rug design called Dune.


The Dune rug is a soft, quilted wool rug by German designers Emelie Ernsting & Sarah Böttger.

Inspired by the soft structure of wind-blown sand, the Dune carpet is made from pieces of woven loden – a soft and durable woolen cloth – that are quilted together to form a three-dimensional pattern. Bringing the comfort of upholstered furniture to the floor, the Dune rug’s tactile surface invites people to sit, lie and relax.
