design: August 2010 Archives

275x250.jpg A bizarre bath-mat which is made out of 70 balls of moss held together in a latex frame has gone on sale after a prototype creation became a hit online.

The £40 'Moss Rug' was created by Nguyen La Chanh over two-years-ago as part of her degree course, but as soon as she uploaded images to the web, she was besieged with requests to buy it.

Since then she has been perfecting the design and finding a firm capable of making the odd item which uses forest moss as a 'living' carpet.

Nguyen, from Switzerland, says the idea of having things growing it the bathroom came to her while she was a student… that's shared bathrooms for you.
