Origami Sand takes inspiration from the traditional Japanese art form known for its transformation of 2D paper surfaces into sculptural 3D pieces. The bold geometric design is created by blending together 7 shades of neutral, which work to emulate the refracted light caused by the construction of these angular forms. The Tibetan wool yarn provides the rug with its sandy hues, while the integration of Chinese silk within the lighter areas emphasises the contrast between light and dark, giving the illusion of tessellating prisms across the plane of the rug.
