A fascination for three-dimensional shapes, layers of patterns and tactile structures has brought together the piece NIGHTFLWR. The entire design is created with a holistic view; while the artwork is stimulating for those interacting with it, the production methods are chosen with nature as a role model.
The bold yet delicate piece opens up for a new view on what carpet in public spaces may look and feel like. The many layers in the design creates a new dimension, which invites you to come closer, open up your senses and start interacting with the artwork, object and space.
The interaction is not only with the artwork itself, but also in the creation of the carpeted floor.
Different patterns and illusions appear depending on how the tiles are combined.
NIGHTFLWR brings diversity, creativity and originality into public rooms and the design is suitable for many different spaces and needs.
The carpet tile is designed to be produced in a closed-loop system, where the clean polyester yarn and the polyester backing can be taken back into the system and be recycled into new, high quality polyester materials. The dyes are non-toxic and fully biodegradable, which enables for a clean water system in the production line. The many shades of gray yarn are achieved by simply using one dye bath multiple times.
