Living on the ground

Inspired by the Indian culture of eating and sleeping on the ground, the laced carpet makes this way of living cosier. Plastic deformations as the main element implement more comfort for living on the ground. Various furnishings can be included and melt with the basis. The process of lace-making allows a three-dimensional surface. Different patterns of lace-making are combined. They are brought in by their need; highly loaded parts are braided tighter. Fixed with synthetic resin from the left side the carpet deformations stand by themselves.
