3D Floors: Hospitality Trend

Bringing floors to the forefront of the interior, these optical rug designs appear to pop out from the floor like drawings of 3D shapes.NODUS_levels_Sylvain Willenz

The colorful ‘Levels’ rugs by Sylvain Willenz for Nodus use simple lines to suggest and play with form, depth and perception. A grid-like version projects an open structure, whereas another version puts forward a solid three-dimensional volume.

Cuboid by Established & Sons

Made from coir, natural coconut fibre, Established&Sons’ abstract ‘Cuboid’ doormat design creates the illusion of three dimensions.

Fanions by Dimitri Bähler, Linn Kandel and Ismaël Studer

The ‘Fanions’ rugs by BKS (Dimitri BählerLinn Kandel and Ismaël Studer) feature laser-cut, asymmetric fringing that makes them appear 3D.


Norwegian designer Siren Elise Wilhelmsen has designed the ‘Season’ carpet – a heat sensitive rug, which changes its colour and pattern according to the temperature. The carpet is woven into a geometric pattern using three colours of wool, each with a different temperature sensitivity.


Patternity’s ‘Sunstripe Fairtrade Rug’ was made in collaboration with Made By Node and the Kumbeshwar Tecnical School Nepal. The bold monochrome design is a salutation to the sun which plays a key part in the making process, which sees the rugs arranged in neat lines a'top the Nepalese rooftops as part of traditional drying technique.
