LARGE DONUT RUG
Juli Foos, FIN, 2012
White plastic bags, shaped into 201 “Donuts“ using cardboard discs. Fat Donuts, all the same size. Soft and pleasant for the feet. All of them woven together with strips of colourful plastic, red, blue, green, yellow – in clear geometrical shapes. Almost oriental. And if needed, easy to repair.
