“Magic Carp-pet” – Rug Design

October 17, 2012 by
Filed under: Red Rugs 



The magical rug literally animates!! When the rug is viewed through the specially designed glass coffee table, an animation of carp appears through a moire effect providing a surprise element of natural liveliness to the interior. The graphic apparition, replacing the traditional fish tank, is also a nod to the decreasing abundance of our most precious natural resource – water. Mythologically, the carp symbolises bravery and fortune. Linguistically, the “carp” becomes a humorous extraction of the “carpet” that reveals this intriguing little conversational piece on the floor. Designed by John Leung for ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects. See the real live prototype of the rug here: www.youtube.com © John Leung. 2010. www.john-leung.com

    Wouldn’t the height you view it from disable the illusion?

    What be this evil magic. If pictures were meant to move then someone would surely put them together with sound and try to tell a story with them.
