Joost Janszen Patchwork Rug

Cool Idea: A Three-Dimensional Rug Design

Need to add a little texture and movement to your home? Why not try adding an extremely textured rug to your floor? I'm loving these three-dimensional patchwork rugs from Dutch industrial artist Joost Janszen, whose work was featured in the Chelsea Art Museum's Model Citizens show as part of New York Design Week.  The rugs can be used as wall hangings, draped artworks, or as a standard rug. Janszen, whose work often explores the intersection between industrial design and art, has worked as an art director for several fashion designers and his primary work include prints and fabrics.

The patchwork rugs were a result of Janszen's fascination with three-dimensional shapes within standard textiles, and the patchwork construction reflects this interest. Repetition of the patchwork allows the rugs to take on a unique texture. Each rug is one of a kind, made from materials including canvas and leather. I think they're absolutely cool, and especially love this citron-colored piece.
