The BKS Fanion Rugs Figuratively Pop Off the Floor

Don't feel ashamed if you thought that the Fanion rugs were actually three dimensional. These clever floor covers were created by BKS, a design group made up of three designers: Dimitri Bähler, Linn Kandel and Ismaël Studer. The word "Fanion" means fringes in French and perfectly describes the way in which BKS made these rugs look as if they were standing on top of the floor.

The best part about the Fanion rugs is that the three dimensional look is achieved so effortlessly. Angling fringes into a rug is apparently all you need to make it look 3D. The rugs were shortlisted in the [D3] Contest for young designers at imm cologne, although they did not end up winning. Stats for Faux 3D Floor Covers Trending: Older & Warm
