Maze Carpet for Moooi
Maze is a series of carpet designs created for the Dutch brand’s MOOOI. Taking inspiration from the relationship between place and architecture, we developed an Escher-like labyrinthine pattern in three variants: Miami, which references the art deco design associated with South Beach; Tical, which takes inspiration from the ancient Mayan city in the jungles of Guatemala; and Puglia, which evokes the sandystoned villages of the sun-baked southern Italian region. An idea of a small 3D puzzle, where you can build in non-directional ways back and forth has informed the design of this series of carpet. In Maze there is no up or down, no left or right, no sense of direction – just an intriguing labyrinth of opportunities.
