toko design: infographiti rug

this rug concept by sydney based toko design uses environmental data to create an inforgraphic that forms the
pattern of the rug. measuring 2×3 meters, the rug visualizes the world’s environmental footprint using hand tufted
new zealand wool. continents and countries are represented by a different colour, with green being the earth’s
average and orange the earth’s biocapacity. the footprint is measured by global hectare per person as measured
by the global footprint network. the colour codes are as follows, purple: africa, pink: asia, orange: world’s
biocapacity, yellow: latin america / caribbean, green: world, dark green: europe, aqua: oceania, blue: australia,
aubergine: north america and red: united arab emirates.
