When designer Maja Johansson created Othello, she mixed influences from industrial materials to create an impression of a playful and classically clean rug. The braided rope creates a small but clear pattern image. The woven rug is made up of three different colored surfaces in equal sections, where one color is allowed to dominate each specific area. The rug is available in three variants: Mandarin Garden, Sounds of Pink and Turquois Delight. These are also available as a single-color option.
