Cover Image: Disposable Carpet
Dutch design trio ‘We Make Carpets‘ isn’t your typical carpet artisans. Designers Marcia Nolte, Stijn van der Vleuten and Bob Waardenburg mixes traditional pattern making with a critical view of the consumer society, the trio creates carpets using every material under the Sun.
‘This amazement concerns the material. And that is what it is all about for WE MAKE CARPETS. ‘We want people to take a fresh look at those products. We want them to become aware of their beauty. You don’t buy a paperclip because it’s beautiful, but it is.’
I’ve enjoyed how they have looked upon the form of each materials and using the form and materiality to create a carpet that highlights each material’s potential. For example, the Paperclip Carpet was made in a such way so that the carpet hangs and drapes across the steps and how about the Disposable Carpet which focuses on each disposable cutlery, allowing their individual shapes to shine.
These carpets are all so beautiful beyond words.
