Grid rug by Professor Craig S Kaplan for Azmas Rugs

Dezeen Showroom: rug company Azmas Rugs has collaborated with computer scientist Craig S Kaplan on the Grid carpet, which has a pattern created by repeating mathematical tiles.

Woven in Rajasthan, India, the flatweave Grid rugs feature a computer-drawn mathematical pattern that are each unique thanks to being handmade.

The rug has an evolving pattern made up of gradually morphing tiles

The pattern gradually evolves inwards, from a straightforward checked pattern on the far outer sides to a complex maze as it reaches the midline of the rug.

"(The design) does not incorporate traditional pattern-repeats but is instead a tiling pattern that evolves in one direction," explained Azmas Rugs founder, Azmi Merican.

The rug is part of Azmas Rugs' Tessellation collection, which features other carpets that have similarly mathematically-generated patterns in a range of geometric shapes and colours.

Grid can be woven using any colours and has a rectangular shape that is 1.5 by 2.1 metres in size.
