Tessellated Floorscape

Tessellated Floorscape is a prototypical mass-customized rug originally produced for Aronson’s Floor Covering. The project makes use of carpeting remnants and increases their value through a new custom pattern. The rug is based on a digital animation from which a different key-frame is extracted each time a new piece is commissioned or sold. The extracted pattern serves directly as a template for water-jet cutting by the manufacturer. The material is cut in a way that maximizes the intricacy of the contoured shape of each tile, while minimizing waste throughout the fabrication. Although always based on the same digital file, each rug in the series is completely unique in shape, material, and color.
