Dutch artist duo We Make Carpets recently presented a huge, immersive carpet installation for "Kneeling," their piece for the Salon del Mobile 2015 in Milan, which took place in mid April. We Make Carpets collect ephemeral, throwaway items like cone-shaped party hats and dish sponges and arrange them into elaborate patterns inspired by Middle Eastern carpet-making traditions. Their colorful works were laid out on the floor at the Salon horizontally rather than hung up on a wall like in a typical gallery, encouraging viewers to circle around the installation to get the full effect.
