Chain Mail Rug / Philippe Malouin

Some would call it slave labour, others a labour of love, but the result has a strength and durability to match the remarkable amount of time spent putting it together, link by link. If it sounds shockingly archaic, just remember: part of craft is the act of making — the finished product, for many, is an after-effect of that Zen-like construction process.

The shape itself is a play on the construction itself — a two-dimensional flooring lifted into three dimensions through components with structural density and height-maintaining stability. Three colours come from electroplated coatings, while galvanised steel wire is used throughout. Designed by Philippe Malouin and company — via Dornob
