Grass Carpet

The design intent was to create an environment that
implies by its appearance that it is made to allow
comfortable, relaxed, and informal sitting. The hilly
cushions invite relaxation and play. The carpet, made
out of one flat surface

and carefully placed zippers, can be zipped up and
transformed into a series of "hills" on which users can
lean. When the carpet needs to be vacuumed, the
zippers can be unzipped and the carpet again
becomes a flat surface. The carpet was designed

in collaboration with Carmel Carpets Ltd. and
the faculty of the Department of Industrial Design,
Bezalel Academy of Art and Design, Jerusalem.
