'Loom' by Axel Russmeyer for Paola Lenti

Axel Russmeyer is a German based maker / artist who I find difficult to categorize..... which is of course something to be admired ;-)

I first came across his work via Brown Grotta Arts.  When recently doing a google search to find his website, I came across this amazing rug design that he did for the equally amazing company Paola Lenti.

You can see that he has woven together silicone rings using a braided rope to wonderful visual effect. These materials mean that the rug is suitable for both indoors and outdoors, and would of course look equally at home on the wall as the floor.
