Seeing a small crease, fold, or wrinkle in your carpet or rug tends to be an annoyance that brings out the best in our OCD. With his latest creation, Italian industrial designer and architect Alessandro Isola “enhances those folds and curves creating flexibility and contrast” with the “Stumble Upon” Rug. In using a corner fold as a multifunctional table, this innovation brings comfort and function to a piece of furniture that has served the same, single purpose for more than a millennia. Isola also focused on the contrast between the two sides, where the top gives the sense it has been handmade with beautiful imperfections, while the under-laying material is a perfectly smooth, reflective surface. “From a stumble on a rug to an annoying accident that happens constantly, it has become the inspiration for an everyday usable object.”
