kwon sunman: rug with scale

‘rug with scale’

most people have scales at home to measure and control their weight. a change of weight can be the most basic and important piece of data that represents one’s health and body shape. ‘rug with scale’ designed by kwon sunman, simply combines a scale with a rug. ideally to be placed in the bathroom for frequent use, it gives a soft touch and displays the user’s previous, present and goal weight as references. the measured weight is saved to give the user an idea of their progress – illuminated through figures. the textile part of the rug can be removed for cleaning and changed according to the user’s tastes.

this concept won the red dot design award 2009.

  • Great Idea,

    Finally a scale that you can leave laying around. But can you wash it?

  • When I’m in a foggy bathroom, I take my glasses off. There is no way I could read the tiny display even with my glasses on.

    Malcom says:
