In collaboration with designer Narae Kim.
Winning design of the ERA Rug Design Competition, presented by Weavers Art & The Interior Design Show, Toronto
The 'Dit-Dah' Rug is a play on the character encoding of Morse code. The "dits and dahs", traditionally found in Morse code, are replaced with solid white and bright orange dots to represent the letters, numerals, punctuation and special characters of a given message. The idea is that each rug would contain an encoded message. The rug comes with a set of solid walnut 'S' and 'O' playing pieces, as the rug transforms into a giant S.O.S. playing surface - a nostalgic take on the pencil and paper game.
