The trio of Dutch designers – Marcia Nolte, Stijn van der Vleuten and Bob Waardenburg create unusual art works in their studio ‘We Make Carpets’ in Amsterdam. The Creative carpet installations that look like traditional carpets from a distance, in fact consist of pencils and fireworks, cocktail umbrellas, plastic forks, dried pasta, and anything. Now the trio of designers ‘We Make Carpets’ mark the fifth anniversary of joint efforts and creation of 50 artworks. Recognition of their extraordinary creativity is an exhibition at the museum in Eindhoven. The exhibition is called “Kneeling, we make carpets for five years”. ‘We want people to take a fresh look at those products. We want them to become aware of their beauty. You don’t buy a paperclip because it’s beautiful, but it is.’
