The illusion of a gaping black hole in a soffice rug

This conceptual rug has a postmodern concept rendered with a modernist palette.

The multidisciplinary artist Scott Jarvie has designed an optical illusion “Void Rug” the design was influenced by the notion that the design of a 2 dimensional rug could be informed by a 3 dimensional approach, where there was more thought embedded in the design than simply the surface pattern. The illusion of depth is achieved by careful consideration of perspective, light and texture.

The simplicity of the aesthetic is in distinct contrast to a number of Jarvie’s recent designs. The piece aspire to be more than an utilitarian item, exhibiting elements of the surreal or the otherworldly, the fabric of dreams rather than daily life.
