Viennese designer Martin Mostböck has designed a rug inspired by the scarred surface of the moon.
Called Dark Side of the Moon, the carpet was designed for Vorwork and features laser cut craters.

The moon has been known since prehistoric times, and after the sun, it is the second brightest object in the sky. As the moon revolves around the Earth once a month, is constantly changing the angle between the earth, the moon and the sun, we see that the cycles of the moon.
The moon, with its uneven, scarred surface is a conceptual approach to the project and at the same metaphor for the transferred to the flat surface perforation, in the textile surface patterns and exciting unusual Durchsichten possible.
