Green Carpet

17 Nov

At the 2009 Milan Furniture Fair this biodegradable moss carpet was unveiled. I think the carpet is unusual, quirky and definitely an eye catching piece. It’s a very unique way for flora to be incorporated in to contemporary building design.  I also found it interesting to read about “Terramac” a knitted eco-friendly material that was incorporated in to the design to hold the moss together. The material is broken down after about 10 years by micro organisms. For further information please follow this link: http://www.inhabitat.com/2009/05/04/moss-carpet-grows-in-the-heart-of-your-home/
