This Rug Is Designed To Create An Optical Illusion That Looks Like There’s A Hole In The Floor

Scottish designer Scott Jarvie, has created the Void Rug, a 100% merino wool floor rug that when placed on the floor and viewed from a certain angle, it gives an illusion of depth.

Scott explains, “The design was inspired by the notion that the design of a 2 dimensional rug could be informed by a 3 dimensional approach, where there was more thought embedded in the design than simply the surface pattern. The illusion of depth is achieved by careful consideration of perspective, light and texture.”
