Pebbles carpet
An indoor carpet made out of stone pebbles sown one by one between two layers of synthetic fabric. The carpet has an appearance of being light weight and soft, but is surprisingly heavy and firm as a result of the pebbles hidden inside. Walking on the bumpy platform creates a new sense of unexpected excitement as one is forced to walk slowly, while fully concentrated and balanced. A calming and soothing massage experience is achieved while one walks or lays on the carpet. The inspiration to this project came from eastern cultures. According to these cultures it is the clean, aesthetic and minimalist qualities of nature that provide a sense of calm inside a home.
