The 'Nothing to Hide' carpet by designers Rita Botelho and Philipp Grundhofer features a fun and clever design. The modern rug accessory is inspired by the popular expression 'sweep under the rug', a phrase "used in situations where people want to hide something negative from the others".

Rejecting the phrase's negative associations, the ‘Nothing to Hide’ carpettransforms the expression into something positive. The result is a range of dark green, navy, grey and blue designs that are accented with hidden flaps of color.

The flaps are brighter and more florescent than their backdrop and resemble a rug that has been folded over. These semi-circular carpets unexpected color combinations and transform round shapes with added linear edges. All rugs are handmade in Portugal in collaboration with Desistart Group.
