Ripening Rugs

Adrianus Kundert

Adrianus Kundert designs rugs that come to life through intensive use. New colours, textures and patterns appear in places where the rug has been used most. Because the rug becomes more beautiful as it wears, it will not be replaced quickly, as happens with normal wear and tear.

Many different types of materials are used for Ripening Rugs: durability is more important than the use of natural materials. In collaboration with the TextielLab and a rope factory, Adrianus Kundert is building a library of transforming materials, with a focus on improvement through wear.
