Follow the line – Elephant

Materials: Himalayan wool and silk

Density: 300 000 knots/m²

A tangle of lines drawn on a sheet of paper giving rise to an identifiable form, an elephant.

The size of the elephant is adapted to the use of the rug. Placed under a piece of furniture, the elephant becomes very small to remain visible and the rug becomes minimalist. Without any visibility constraints, the elephant spreads out over the entire surface to the point where it becomes almost abstract. 

The elephant is made up of interlaced white lines. The colour of the plain grey background has been worked to match the elephant’s skin tone. The whole thing resembles a chalk drawing on a slate board.
