moonwalk. carpet.


The designers of Droog know no bounds when it comes to reinventing everyday things. Take their version of carpet, called Moonwalk. It's, well, lumpy and 3-D and fun and alien looking. Like, say, a moonscape (really a reverse moonscape, since the moon tends to have craters, not bumps). Yeah, not really practical, either for walking or cleaning -- I'd love to see how a Roomba would deal with this -- but that's not always the point. Gotta admit, the brown isn't doing it for me though. Yeah, the moon is brown, but I like my carpet colors to be a bit more vibrant. If you're wondering, it's made of "100% wool, soft PU."

The moon is brown??? On what planet? Also, what's PU? Sounds like "pee yew."

Depending on the size, it could bring texture and dimension as a wall installation.

I could make that; it looks like a typical piece of shibori work (partly felted knitting). In fact maybe I *will* make one, but not in brown.
