samples 30 x 30 cm – Velvet flock applied on cement tiles

Dis/Appearing carpet is inspired by natural processes and aesthetics of erosion, the process of reveiling something with time. The project started with a material experiment, applying the technique of flock to embossed concrete surface. Flock adds a tactile sensation to the concrete, replacing its characteristic roughness with a velvet-like surface. However, when subject to friction, the layer of flock slowly starts fading away to reveal the moulded pattern.
