January 29th, 2010
InterfaceFLOR’s new facility “Aware House” in the United States, is an impressive space, housing a number of installations where carpet comes to life, designed to promote the creative use of carpet.
For Aware House’s first public showing, top US design firms were given 18 – 30 square metres of space and a tool box of yarn, carpet fluff, unbacked carpet, cloth backing and carpet tiles. They were invited to take up the challenge to create an installation made of carpet and carpet derived materials, and were given no restrictions. In conjunction with Interior Design, the first Idea Lab project was born.
