Norwegian designer Siren Elise Wilhelmsen has designed the Season Carpet, a circular rug which changes colour according to temperature. The first design changes from blue to mint at 15°C and from red to yellow at 28°C, the second rug changes from purple to pink at 15°C and from red/brown to yellow at 28°C.
Wilhelmsen explains: “Our natural environment is always changing; flowers are blooming at a certain temperature, leaves are falling off by another and the snow falls by temperatures below zero. In the same way the Season Carpet is sensible to temperature alteration and its colors and pattern is changing due to the surroundings; the weather and the season. The carpet is braided in a three-color pattern, where the colors have different temperature sensibilities and will change its color at different temperatures. In this way, the carpet will change its look through the day and the year – depending on the environment.”
