Temporary Carpets

Here are some more tantalizing images of what happens when ordinary objects are assembled into formal, geometric compositions by artists and designer. These “temporary” carpets are reminiscent of the structures that young children create with blocks. Although children’s initial intention and their access to such a large quantity of units may certainly differ from this Dutch design collective, the impulse to create order and beauty from the ordinary is similar as well as the fragility and temporal nature of the final product.

  1. These are beautiful – I love working with children on pattern because it is a truly endless topic, and this is a lovely example of pattern. I’ll definitely be re-sharing this!
