Carpets for Buildings | News

Carpets for Buildings creates exclusive carpet designs based on giving principle attention to the spatial experience of a building. With software we developed ourselves, we implement the use of computer controlled carpet production machines in an innovative way. Designs can be printed and tufted. This is done in close collaboration with several carpet manufacturers.
The carpets can be produced either in broadloom or modular fashion.



Unrepeatable Carpets


Our design Unrepeatable Carpets
is a response to the repetitive monotony of standard carpet tiles. The designs result from the desire
to create unique and vivid patterns through out buildings. By the use of custom designed software images are randomly generated to make Unrepeatable Carpets. The files are entered into a computer controlled carpet production machine. This process generates an endless variety of outcomes creating a particular decorative pattern. Due to the universal quality of the pattern, however, tiles may still be easily replaced when necessary.


Wall-through-wall Carpets


A Wall Through Wall Carpet is
the result of a design strategy for buildings in which the perception
of space is united with the floor plan. With the use of computer controlled carpet printing and tufting ma-chines, it is possible to create special visual and atmospheric effects for a building in combination with a carefully executed carpeting plan.
