The 'Fervent Carpet' is a heated rug that is safe for asthma sufferers to use. There are an estimated 200 million asthma sufferers worldwide and many of them deal with upholstered furnishings and textiles that only exacerbate their condition. The Fervent Carpet provides an asthma-friendly alternative in the form of a revolutionary coiled rug.

The Fervent Carpet is designed by the French design firm Studio Siem-Pabom. The heated rug is made from two lengths of rope that have been dipped in a protective rubber coating. For the rug to heat up, it must be connected to the radiator every few months via hydraulic connections. Once connected, warm water circulates through the coils, which helps to kill off any dust mites within it. The heated rug thus provides a safe form of flooring for asthma sufferers.
