For the second time in two years Deadgood have teamed up with leading British illustrator Jon Burgerman, this time to create the ‘Doodle Rug’ in which Jon’s distinctive doodle scrawls have been transformed into this bold and distinctive product.
The new rug was unveiled at Design Junction last week. It measures 2500mm x 1500mm and is made of 100% hand-tufted wool.
In an interview with Breaks of 10, Jon refers to the rug as “fuzzy and warm”. He further states:
It’s great to make works that people will hang on their walls but it’s just as cool to have stuff people can walk all over or park their bottoms on.
There you have it! Pick up a Doodle Rug (and then put it down and park your “bottom” on it) here now for £1487 or ~$2,312 USD.
Deadgood has revealed a sneak preview of an exciting furniture design project with Jon that will officially launch at 100% Design this September:
Defined by a dynamic use of colour and a unique graphic energy, Burgerman’s distinctive doodle scrawls have been screen printed and encapsulated within a resin imrpegnated craft core, overlaid with melamine and subsequently pressed at high temperatures to create a highly durable surfacing material.
Deadgood “strives to create objects that are both beautiful and unique” and from the looks of it, they have succeeded with this. I can’t wait to see more.
