Do-Lo-Rez RugPrice: $3,493.00
Design by Ron Arad, 2009.
The name, Do-Lo-Rez, comes from the expression "do low resolution". The idea came to designer Ron Arad after seeing a pixelated image in low resolution, which has materialized into a three-dimensional surface. Each 9" square is a different height from the ones beside it. The extraordinary format involves multiple vertices that seem like the final pieces of an unfinished puzzle.
Do-Lo-Rez is a union of two pieces, rug and sofa, conceived as a single element. Created jointly, they form an unusual project that brings the virtual world closer to the real world.
Made of hand-tufted 100% New Zealand Wool, the Do-Lo-Rez Rug is available in Red, Blue or Grey in two versions.
This is a handmade craft product. Minor variations, in size and color, are inevitable. Do not dryclean.
