az & mut: on the rocks carpet collection

paris-based design duo rafaële david and géraldine hetzel of az & mut have created ‘on the rocks’ carpet collection. consisting of three different shapes, the rugs can be placed in any configuration. the floor coverings are hand-tufted in belgium from linen. the material allows for thermo-regulation, absorbing 20% of its weight in moisture before feeling damp.  for slip-resistance, there is a natural latex backing. ‘on the rocks’ is on show at maison et objet 2012

three shapes allow flexibility in the configuration of the carpets
