In this paper I outline my research into material humour through designing and making cut pile rugs. Cut pile rugs are textiles that have yarn at a right angle to the surface of the cloth creating a ‘pile,' this can be produced by knotting by hand, or tufting using a tufting gun. In this project I translate the patterns into tufted carpets to investigate how the patterns change when they are transformed into three dimensional objects. Alongside this technical research I study the use of material humour in the works of conceptual design studios; Front, Uglycute and Droog to explore the use of comedic effects in design. This paper will develop these investigations by documenting the creation of samples and rugs and their presentation at the Konstfack 2016 Spring exhibition.
