The Rex Plastic Rug 70x240cm was designed by Lina Rickardsson for the manufacturer pappelina.
From simple beginnings, pappelina has grown to become one of the quiet success stories of 21st century Swedish design. Rickardsson's creations, like the Rex Plastic Rug 70x240cm, grew out of her passion for bespoke hand-weaving as well as her love of fine and applied art, which she studied in Gothenburg. Rickardsson's rugs are a perfect combination of old and new. They reinvent the utilitarian classics she grew up with, and have made them into a stylish must-have for a modern interior.
Her choice to use Swedish-produced synthetic plastics to create the Rex Plastic Rug 70x240cm was an aesthetic one, but also a supremely practical one. The rug will easily wipe clean and can take the wear and tear of everyday family life. This long runner is a great choice for hallways or any in-between spaces, and it's durable enough for use indoors or out, meaning it's highly versatile. Proving that 'synthetic' can also mean environmentally conscious, Rickardsson doesn't believe in harsh dyes or treatments, so you'll find none used in the making of this rug.
