We are back with another report about the Dutch Design Week. Starting with something totally different and fun this time. The “Kneeling / Five years of We Make Carpets” exhibition. To understand what you are going to see here, I have to explain to you what it all means.

These carpets are made of materials you can find anywhere. The ‘everyday materials’ from your kitchen drawer or something from nature. The three designers, Marcia Nolte, Stijn van der Vleuten and Bob Waardenburg created carpets from pasta, bottles, chocolates or any kind of material they could find. They start building an esthetic pattern on the floor while kneeling. They create a bridge between design and art. Anything that has a volume can be a carpet. Let’s have a look at their beautiful creations.

Cocktail umbrellas.

An amazing concept with a big WOW effect. Lots of people looked at the carpets for minutes, realizing what they are looking at and what the bigger picture is. This collection of carpets was made by MU.

Our next location was the Zitfabriek, a space full with lovely chairs and other pieces of furniture. Have a look at a few of my favorites here.
