We Make Carpets

We Make Carpets create temporary carpet designs from simple materials that you can find around your house. Balloons, paperclips, pasta, birthday party hats and cups of coffee are some of the every day materials they used for their creations that were on display at Dutch Design Week Eindhoven 2014.

Created through the collaboration of visual artist Bob Waardenburg and designers Stijn van der Vleuten and Marcia Nolte, these carpets are constructed by hand. There are no pre-determined plans or sketches guiding the designs as the team works in a free flowing, spontaneous way, laying down materials one after the other to form the intricate patterns.
