Dezeen Showroom: woven, weatherproof ropes are wound into a serpentine pattern to form the Pleiadi outdoor rug, designed by Paolo Zani for Warli.

The Pleiadi rug comes in a range of monochrome colours with the sinuous lines of the ropes providing visual interest.

Each rope segment is tied off with a decorative element that puts a contemporary spin on traditional fringing.

Made of synthetic yarn and sewn by hand, Pleiadi is both UV and weather resistant while being soft underfoot.

"Pleiadi is an idea born out of the blue, a sketch from the past made on a piece of paper," said Zani.

"No research, no computer processing, only the continuity of an element that repeats itself within a geometric shape."

The Pleiadi rug comes in two sizes and is suited to outdoor spaces as well as wet areas around saunas and spas.

Pleiadi will be presented at this year's Salone del Mobile furniture fair, which takes place in Milan from 5 to 10 September.
