Alphabet Rug

Zeev Aram
2003

The design began with squares of paper. By minimum scissoring around the edges the hint of letters emerged. Twenty six letters can't be arranged in a regular pattern to form a square. So I made twenty five. A permissible reduction, I think, as the rug can be viewed from any side and thus enables the N to double up for Z. A normally stands for Apple but in this case it is Aram. The fugitive Z represents my good friend Zeev. The alphabet was designed for a rug to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Aram Designs and can be purchased through the Aram store.
