We Make Carpets

BY MARCIA NOLTE
@ VOL 13 ON FEB 24, 2015

Speaker Marcia Nolte discusses WE MAKE CARPETS, a buisness that does not make carpets. At least, not the kind of carpet you can walk on. Still, one of the visitors of the Dutch Design Week 2010 stepped all over Fork Carpet.

The carpets are not meant to be touched either. But it sometimes happens anyway. ‘Muisjes’ Carpet suddenly had an imprint of a finger. A visitor nibbled on Candybar Carpet. 

But to glue everything down or put an art barrier around it? No. That doesn’t fit with the work. From a distance it may look like a carpet but you have to come close to see it is actually made of clothes pegs. Or some other everyday product.

Product Design A to Z

BY DANIEL FORTIN
@ VOL 4 ON OCT 25, 2013

"Designing is the art of using forethought. If you make it up on the spot, that's not design, that's Jazz.'"

In Product Design A to Z from PechaKucha Night New Westminster Vol. 4, Lead Product Designer at lighting manufacturer, Fluxworks Illumination, Daniel Fortin walks us through the process of taking an idea, LED design in this case, through its myriad stages of development before it hits production and tells us why we need to pay closer attention to the products we surround ourselves. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, May 16th, 2016.
