CARPET is a small rug that can be „folded“ into a stable stool fast and easily. A surprising solution when there is lack of space but seating is needed unexpectedly. And no need to clean up or to find „invisible“ storage space later, CARPET can simply lie on the floor
anywhere.There are many possible applications, it is ideal for student housing, small
apartments, camping, kindergarten, course rooms or as an advertising medium for sponsors at events. Outstanding about the design is it‘s versatility, the nearly endless possibilities to change color, material and shape.
