Trippy 3D Rug Weaves Ancient Traditions & Visual Trickery


Much like painters master tradition before departing from it, the makers of this fantastic floor rug draw on the patterns and techniques of Tibet dating back thousands of years … but use them to create a unique new experience.

Eos Mexico created this piece employing handmade craftsmanship combined with computer-modeled perspective, giving the effect of a sunken surface that distorts and bends as one walks around it.

To call the result multicultural or trans-national would miss the depth and diversity of its influences (and a conscious design choice to weave’ elements from all areas it is intended to be exhibited in).

Its creator, Armenia-born and raised in Istanbul, had the materials shipped from New Zealand, Egypt and India to be woven in India by Nepalese artisans based on the Mexican-made design to be placed in a German-collecting museum.
