Carpet & Space explores our perception of space; the way it communicates with us and the decisions we take when designing it. Within this perception of space, there are elements that can be defined by pairs of opposites, or fundamental differences. Carpet & Space attempts to identify these differences, the existing and the new and suggests new directions for the use of carpet within.
In today’s society these pairs of opposites are exciting and challenging and we are discovering that such opposites increasingly influence their counterparts.
Take attempts to bring rural qualities to urban spaces – gardens on the streets of Detroit, or roof gardens atop modern townhouses in Tokyo and New York. One explores the other and adopts some of its features.
Carpet & Space will focus on innovative combinations where opposites, even seemingly outright contradictions, come together to produce an aesthetically pleasing and attractive result.
