The Muurbloem Rugs are Ephemeral Public Decorations

When I admire the Muurbloem Sand Carpets, I can only think of the title of the movie Gone with the Wind. These carpets beautifully enhance public spaces, but not for long, as their materials are easily carried away by any breeze or the movements of bystanders.

The Sand Carpets were designed by the studio Muurbloem, which specializes in developing spectacular patterns to decorate all areas. As its names suggests, the project is made from sand that is sprinkled on the floor with the help of perforated PVC tubes. These types of artistic concepts make public spaces much more entertaining and warm for people. Additionally, they bring free art closer to pedestrians without having them visit a museum.

With gorgeous, but short-lasting aesthetic designs, the Muurbloem Sand Carpets give one more reason to explore and actually take advantage of public spaces.
