Ruckstuhl Memory Rug

Memory is a three-dimensional rug made with an experimental approach to materials of pure new wool that reflects both tradition, and the spirit of the times; digital technology.

EXPLORING THE LIMITS OF DIGITAL PRODUCTION

Memory is a three-dimensional rug made with an experimental approach to materials of pure new wool that reflects both tradition, and the spirit of the times; digital technology. Memory draws inspiration from the heart of the ubiquitous connected devices that we rely on for working or communicating, for playing or taking photographs - the printed circuit board, or PCB. With the help of digital cutting machines, computers and craftsmanship, a precisely defined play of forms and rhythms is rendered for Memory, which reflect the PCB's transistors, chips, and plugs. The structure of the individual Digital looking elements practically suggest an oriental rug, while freshly reinterpreting this millennia-old tradition.

RESEARCH MANUFACTURING PROCESSES

The goal of this project was to research opportunities in digital manufacturing of a traditional material. By cutting individual layers of pure wool felt with various thicknesses and then re-assembling them, a three dimensional product could be made. The materials allowed us to work with zero tolerance and led to amazing cut precision and dimensional accuracy.
