Rugi is a 100% wool rug, with a layer of inductive woven fabric that reacts to the pressure of the weight it receives.  The inductive textile allows the scale to be part of the home furnitures.

Rugi intervene in the moment of being weight and in the object it self and give them a different materialistic identity and different informative feedback.

The information is obtained by the Rugi app, and the timing is determined by the user. The changes in the new interface of the object creates a new intimate experience, that allows us, as users, to read the weight as mass and object, differently.
