Unicellular Organism Rugs
Patricia Urquiola Used Algae as Inspiration for the Cintas Carpet

When you think of muses, you probably don’t think of micrasterias algae. Designer Patricia Urquiola was inspired, however, by the unicellular organism. The Cintas Carpet doesn’t have a normal rectangular rug shape. Instead, the algae’s organic shape inspired Urquiola to break the rug mold. She designed the Cintas Carpet for the Chevalier Edition.

Even though the Cintas Carpet is beautiful, Urquiola doesn’t think of it as art. Carpets are made for walking, standing and sitting, according to the artist, so stretch on out and enjoy the algae inspiration.
