Jimenez Lai works in the world of art, architecture and education. His studio BUREAU SPECTACULAR imagines other worlds and engages in design through telling stories. Beautiful stories about character development, relationships, curiosities and attitudes; absurd stories about fake realities that invite enticing possibilities. The stories conflate design, representation, theory, criticism, history and taste into cartoon pages. These cartoon narratives swerve into the physical world through architectural installations, models and now, rugs.

“As a two-dimensional surface, the rug is a spatial medium for architects to experiment with the interior of architecture as both a spatial but also graphic condition. In this collection of rugs, we sought to explore the relationship between plans, elevations, and the possible three-dimensional applications of the rug as a two-dimensional graphic medium.” - Jimenez Lai

With this Limited Edition series of rugs for URBAN FABRIC, Lai blurs the traditional boundaries and definitions of the rug, with designs that breach the threshold between floor and wall. His “Corner Splat” Rug is a rug that occupies the corner of a room, combining 2 adjacent walls with a section of the floor. The resulting plush ‘nook’ creates a new kind of space and challenges the very notion of where and how we’ve used rugs for hundreds of years.

Our handmade Designer rugs are tufted from 100% New Zealand wool and are suitable for floor or wall applications. The rugs are carefully crafted by artisans with multiple cut pile heights to create a plush 3D relief texture and detail.
