LANDCARPET is a modern area rug series, inspired by nature and farmed landscapes. It shows the world from straight above, as we usually see it only out of the window of a plane.

Based on satellite images LANDCARPET is a captured fascinating aerial view to touch. The stylized fields are of different height and let each rug appear like a miniaturized landscape transforimng a rug into a piece of nature in your apartment.

As each culture deals with landscape and farming in a different way LANDCARPET comes in various series, each of them representing a different continent or country. Europe is held in warm green and brown colors, USA comes in very fresh green colors, Africa in a series of earthen tones and Netherlands as a colorful array of flower fields. Italy, a unique piece added purple and yellow tones showing Toscany in fall.
