We Make Carpets
They made its first carpet (forest carpet) during the exhibition ‘instant nature’ on the dutch design week 2009. ‘forest carpet’ initiated the start of a new project: We Make Carpets. Concentrating on an other use of everyday products We Make Carpets creates temporary contemporary carpets.
The instant way of working is what connected the designers Stijn van der Vleuten and Marcia Nolte and visual artist Bob Waardenburg. Without a sketch or plan (except for the chosen material) they start working on the carpet, resulting in a concentrated process of laying the materials one by one untill the finished carpet appears.
Fascinated by the great amount of different materials available on the market today, the possebilities for ‘we make carpets’ seem endless. The shape of the chosen materials dictates the pattern of the carpet. The modern materials together with traditional carpet symetry shape the carpets.
