To create Reform, a geometric rug for Tai Ping, architects Vincent Lim and Elaine Lu of Hong Kong interdisciplinary design firm Lim+Lu were inspired by everyday surroundings. “We wanted to create a rug that would be able to conform to any space without sacrificing its inherent character,” says Lu. “The result was a modular rug consisting of three modules that would allow users to piece together their perfect rug no matter the shape of their space.” Reform also illustrates how different materials can be combined, with a color palette of pastel pinks and blues that mimic stone against metals such as brass and silver. Techniques such as cut and loop in different pile heights, twisted yarn, over tuft loop and sculpting—a combination of hand carving, beveling, and embossing—help achieve a medley of textures.
