Swiss designers BKS create fun 3D looking rugs thanks to asymmetrical fringing

There is something so brilliant about seeing a really simple idea executed to perfection, and Swiss trio Dimitri Bähler, Linn Kandel and Ismaël Studer have done exactly that with Fanion. The Swiss designers, who work together as BKS, have created a series of rugs which use simple asymmetry to make them look like three dimensional creating a fun optical illusion. Named after the French word for “fringe,” the quality of the craftsmanship is nicely high too, making the pieces more interesting than mere visual one-liners.
