“Do Low Resolution”. A pixelated image in low resolution, reflected in a three-dimensional surface. A tandem of volumes and levels.
Created by Ron Arad, Do-Lo-Rez is a union of two pieces, rug and sofa, conceived as a single element. Created jointly, they form an unusual project that brings the virtual world closer to the real world.
The idea came to him after seeing a pixelated image in low resolution, which has materialized into a three-dimensional surface. The rug is made by making each square a different height from the ones beside it.
On the other hand, its extraordinary format involves multiple vertices that seem like the final pieces of an unfinished puzzle. This game of volume and levels gives free rein to customization.
Combining playful forms and experiments with advanced technologies, Ron Arad has emerged as one of the most influential designers of our time.
Born in Tel Aviv, he moved to London in 1973 to study architecture and made his name in the early 1980s as a self-taught designer-maker of sculptural furniture. He currently works across both design and architecture and has garnered various awards throughout his career.

This technique requires a pistol-like tool to punch the fiber strands into a previously stretched fabric in a frame.
To start the process, the strands are punched into the areas marked by the mapping (a template used to transfer the digital design to the rug support).
Next, the protruding strands are cut and shaved to achieve the desired pile height.
The design is contoured with scissors or a needle in order to correctly define the different areas of the motif.
Once the motif is defined, a layer of latex is applied to the reverse side of the rug to ensure that the strands remain attached to the structure.
To finish, a layer of fabric is affixed to act as a lining, offering a quality finish.
This technique permits curvilinear shapes, different pile heights, as well as the application of different colors within the same rug.
High density and durability.
