Zippable modular carpet system
Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec’s Zip carpet is a simple system of 200 x 75 cm wool felt modules that are connected with a zip fastener. Conceived as both a flexible flooring solution as well as a critique of the traditional surface of the rug, Zip suggests limitless possibilities for user-determined length and color composition.
