"Magic Carp-pet" - Rug Design by CHC

The magical rug literally animates!!

When the rug is viewed through the specially designed glass coffee table, an animation of carp appears through a moire effect providing a surprise element of natural liveliness to the interior. The graphic apparition, replacing the traditional fish tank, is also a nod to the decreasing abundance of our most precious natural resource - water. Mythologically, the carp symbolises bravery and fortune. Linguistically, the "carp" becomes a humorous extraction of the "carpet" that reveals this intriguing little conversational piece on the floor. LINK: Youtube
