Hem / Woven carpet collection


Discipline: Product


Discipline: Product

Hem by Carpet Concept – When designing the woven carpet collection Hem, Ben van Berkel / UNStudio drew his inspirations from the lively structures of natural and urban landscapes. The collection is based on non-directional patterns of colored dots, which appear to result in ever new graphical images and are perceived in various ways when viewed from different angles and distances. Numerous shades serve as a basis for the composition and highlighting of 34 color variations. With this wide variety, the pixel-like patterns invite to create various combinations – to design one’s own textile landscapes.

The Hem carpet captivates with its fine irregular color grid, with great color combinations and with excellent workmanship. What makes Hem stand out is the visual effect of this sophisticated grid that, depending on perspective and distance, constantly creates different pictures and graphic structures: fascinating.
