Model

 

Woo(l)den carpets are carpets made of wool & wood.

Fishbone is the first prototype of the project called Woo(l)den carpets, which are carpets designed with the use of wool and wood and inspired by familiar floor patterns, such as herringbone in this case. It is designed to stand in-between a woollen carpet and a wooden floor, combining soft woollen feel with the sense of a solid wooden floor, in one product. By walking on it you get a unique sense. Fishbone carpet is a 100% natural product, composed by 100% woollen felt layers produced by a local Greek industry of felt. Wooden parts are manufactured by massif maple Canadian wood, cut into 9mm layers combined with the felt beneath, with a set of 4 embodied magnets at each part.

Future evolution
We designed wool(d)en carpets to share what we believe is a progress in carpets and flooring. Two patterns have been studied so far, Fishbone and Square, and have been receiving remarkable comments from public ever since. 140831_MG_3902140831_MG_3917
