3D Face Carpets
Brian Frandsen 'Face to Face' is a Texturized Portrait

The Brian Frandsen Face to Face portrait recreates the designer’s face in 3D carpet format. The project was part of The Tube at I Saloni showing at Milan Design Week. Put together by the Kolding School of Design to showcase the artistic work of students that still have “commercial potential,” the project was created by Frandsen and Danish flooring manufacturer ege Carpet.

After scanning and printing the pattern, the artists used 920 m2 of carpet and stacked them, layer by layer, until all 250 pieces were assembled for Frandsen’s self-construction. The stack of layers makes Frandsen’s face resemble a 3D topographical map. Yet, this time the location is a human face. The face appears slightly sinister in this format; the unconventional use of carpet textile is intriguingly artistic.
