In Switzerland Patrik and Frank Riklin put together a massive picnic blanket design that spans across a huge series of green hills. The installation, known as BIGNIK thanks to it's enormous size, is one of the largest picnic blankets ever made in the world.

The Riklin brothers replicated the checked red and white pattern of a traditional picnic blanket by sticking together 15-feet by 15-feet large squares of red and white material from towels, curtains and blankets with Velcro. The brothers began collecting the materials back in 2012 and to-date have created the largest known picnic blanket for visitors to enjoy having a meal on. Over 1,500 people have come to visit and eat on the BIGNIK blanket.
