So we’re not usually interior fanatics, as primarily web design geeks, but this one deserves a feature. As open-minded creative, we love a bit of everything, especially unique design creations of all varieties. Originally showcased on Dezeen, these floor fancies are optical illusions: asymmetric rugs, made of wool by Swiss design trio BKS. Read on to learn more about these magnificent floor mats!

The fancy feature on these lush pieces is the asymmetric fringing around certain edges that create a visual 3D floor illusion from a bird’s eye view. They pop out from the floor like bold 3D shapes, in striking colours- perfect for any quirky home interior. BKS stated they “used the fringes in a modern and graphical way”- or fanions, in French, if you will!

BKS are made up of a talented trio, with differing expertise- Dimitri Bähler, who had a super stationary set featured on Dezeen last year, Linn Kandel infamous for her unique table set incorporating electricity pylons and Ismaël Studer, designers fascinated by delighting architectural space with the use of interior objects.

These rugs were shortlisted for the [D3] Contest for young designers at imm cologne and to see more of the top designs that were involved at cologne 2013, click here. Don’t be surprised to see squishy stools shaped like animals, a house of future trade fair and iconic lamps that are composed of modular components. It is nnovation at its best guys, so take a peek! Together they personify the combination of a futurism-modernist home lovechild.
