Artful hand-dyed rugs made from wood
Half rug, half sculpture, Elise Strozyk’s wooden rugs are unlike anything we’ve ever seen. They manage to overturn our concept of wood as a material – precisely as the German designer intended. By transforming wood into a sort of fabric that can be shaped and folded, an everyday experience becomes something remarkable and worthy of consideration. To create each object, a laser cuts wood veneer into triangles that are then hand-dyed and attached to a textile base. The resulting “textile” can be laid flat or crumpled, folded, shaped and molded, changing the aspect of a room with a simple touch.
