Dutch designers Marcia Nolte, Stijn van der Vleuten and Bob Waardenburg work together as We Make Carpets to create, well, carpets. However their carpets are awesomely unusual and definitely not made to be walked on.
The patterns they use are very traditional, but the materials are anything but. The trio uses everyday items such as cocktail umbrellas, bamboo skewers, disposable kitchenware, crayons, fireworks and dried pasta to create intricately patterned carpets that exist as temporary art installations presenting a critical view of consumer culture.
To celebrate 5 years of creative carpet-making We Make Carpets is holding an exhibition of their work in the form of recent carpet designs at the mu gallery in Eindhoven, Netherlands. The exhibition runs through October 26, 2014.
