fish skin on the roof

A carpet whose form, colour and size can change flexibly thanks to its parts: small overlapping pieces like fish scales or roof tiles.
You can’t make the entire carpet out of individual parts or it will be cumbersome to assemble. We made units out of two, three and four overlapping circles, so that they’re relatively easy to assemble and provide colour variation.
if the pieces are too thick, they would have been bulky when layered, so we explored extremely thin, high quality materials. The result: since the carpet has so many connecting points, it’s ideal for concealing the home appliance, lighting, phone charger and other electrical cables that overflow in modern daily life.
