Designed in collaboration with British illustrator Matthew Gaffen, Alex Chinneck's Concrete Rug applies the scrolling motifs in traditional rug design to concrete housed in a smooth wooden frame. Made from 238 individual pieces, the three and a half by six foot design appears to transform concrete into a tactile material. It's available from the Sculpture House.
