Chelsea graduate, show winner and rising textile designer Eleanor Ross is exploring man's relationship with carpet in a stunning interactive art installation in collaboration with Antron® carpet fibre. Challenging our perception of carpet and exploring its detail through dissection, the installation will explode Eleanor's signature style revealing the intricacy that goes into pattern creation and carpet made with Antron® carpet fibre. An exploration of layers and detail, the human scale installation will stimulate your senses in ways you never thought carpet could.
Lending Eleanor the space and freedom to let her creativity run wild, Antron® carpet fibre will also present the Carpet & Space concept that considers how humans have forged a relationship with carpet and how it influences modern living and working, along the way revealing some surprising technologies and applications.
There is one thing for sure. With Eleanor and Antron® carpet fibre, you will not find any carpet on the floor.
INVISTA’s Antron® carpet fibre presented its Carpet and Space concept to an audience of architects and designers over breakfast at furniture brand Vitra’s Parisian showroom.
Design consultant Thérèse Hauff-Macé explained the performance of Antron® carpet fibre and how it can have a positive impact on the flooring space, both aesthetically and practically, before revealing the exploratory Design Tool Kit and Carpet & Space concept.
The Design Tool Kit highlights the role of carpet as an element of interior design, depicting its relationship with and translation of nine different materials ranging from glass through to metal, wood and stone showcasing the design flexibility of carpets made with Antron® carpet fibre. Thérèse went on to explain the relationship between the Design Tool Kit and the Carpet & Space campaign’s four themes in a hands-on exploration of both, allowing attending architects and designers to truly understand the various textures, colours, patterns lustres and innovations made capable with Antron® carpet fibre.
“The series of breakfasts provided a fantastic opportunity to explain Antron® carpet fibre face-to-face with some of France’s top architects and designers,” enthused Thérèse Hauff-Macé. “Both the Design Tool Kit and the Carpet & Space concept are great ways to explore the creative possibilities offered by the fibre and attendees were astounded to find out that carpet can also interact directly with building users through several special innovations.”
Alongside the attendance of architects and designers, a separate press breakfast was held with the attendance of journalists from leading architecture and design magazines.
