HAY’s Flat Works rugs are created by New York-based artist Ethan Cook, who is known for his colourful, geometric art painted on self-made canvas. The collaboration between Cook and HAY, Flat Works, transforms Cook’s paintings into beautiful, hand-woven wool blend rugs featuring surprising combinations of colour. 
Cook describes rugs as being like a stage, for life: we sit, stand, nap and play on rugs all day, so a rug must be designed in a way that it supports everyday living. Add some joie de vivre to the living room or dining area or give the kids’ room an artistic touch: the jovial Flat Works rugs are the ultimate mood booster for all spaces.
