These designers are making carpets by squirting liquid foam out of a syringe
Rotterdam-based designers Ward van Gemert and Adriaan van der Ploeg, of design studio NIGHTSHOP, have created the Showdown Carpets, an interesting collection of art made from foam, whose end result is similar to a carpet, however the designers mention “they’re more objects without a clear use”.
Using syringes filled with custom colored liquid urethane foam, they gently squeeze out the foam into the desired shape and pattern.
Once the foam expands and dries, it sticks to the piece next to it, and makes the entire piece of work become one.
Here is a close-up of the foam.
They’re on a mission to create 10 pieces (currently they have 7), which will be exhibited in April, at the Robert van Oosterom gallery in Rotterdam.
Here are some examples of the other pieces they’ve created.
