Oh Gee Carpets for Plinth Project @ Etage Projects

Produced for 'The Plinth Project'
The Carpet is a hybrid object between architecture and furniture. In mass-culture away from salons of design it is a key area of expression where people interact with the appearance of their homes. The plinth emerged through classical antiquity: a box decorated with the language of architecture, covings, mouldings et al. merging sculptures with their surrounding. Essentially mouldings are simple devices to hide junctions between materials and planes, but they have developed their own mystique. A mainstay of DIY superstores – the mass-market venue for dissemination of architecture - is the polystyrene architrave, pediment and ceiling rose ready to glue onto your living room wall.
