Rat King Rug By Pupsam, France

A tsunami of black rats on a hibiscus pink background. A sea of staring eyes. Everywhere! Those wild eyes with their crazed look. Those intermingled tails. A freakish, tangled skein, teeming with crawling creatures inching towards an unknown destination. A purpose it is up to us to determine, or perhaps invent.

Pupsam is Parisian creative studio led by David Puel & Thomas Libé, both researchers and inventors who, lucky for all of us, found their way into the design to create this amazing, repulsing, and fascinating rodent rug. The Rat King Rug is a hand-knotted carpet constructed of wool & viscose, because of it's intricacy, only eight carpets were made.
