Cave Rug

Urban Jupena's avatar Urban Jupena

Cave Rug is an inviting environmental rug comprising seven woven sections that are laid over custom-made foam cushions to form hills and valleys. The wall section is supported by a plywood frame, as is the top portion, which is suspended from the ceiling. Two mounds of wool wrappings camouflage a light fixture that illluminates the interior of the rug.
