2019 Evolve Award Finalist Warm. Soft. Dynamic. Precise. The Plaka rug is an ode to a childhood delight - an iconic Portugese ice cream, famous for its striking strawberry stripes and elegant cap of chocolate. Named after the Portugese word for 'tectonic plates', the Plaka rug is composed of a series of 'islands' united by a thin, lower pile border. These islands are paired stripes in four shades - the colour combinations contrived in accordance with the way the affect each other optically. The result is a subtle illusion which makes each colour feel brighter or darker, depending on the intensity of its neighbouring colour.
