Described by Koolhaas as a "startling innovation" the pioneering carpet is being showcased in the Venice Biennale's Elements of Architecture exhibition, which focuses on the fundamentals of buildings such as the floors, walls, ceilings, the roof and corridors.
“This collaboration has produced exciting potential for the functionality of the carpet. We were very pleased to be able to include this innovation in the Elements of Architecture exhibition as an example of the future of flooring. “
“We are excited to have been asked to contribute to the Elements of Architecture at Biennale. This innovation fundamentally transforms how people interact with a space. It turns the flooring into a dynamic canvas with endless applications engaging directly with our senses and natural inclination to seek out light. We are honoured to have been asked to contribute to this exciting exhibition - the Elements of Architecture at Biennale.”
Ed Huibers, Sales and Marketing Director at Philips
“Innovation drives what we do at Desso, organised around three key elements: Creativity, Functionality and Cradle to Cradle®. We are thrilled that the new carpet, the result of an exciting collaboration with Philips, is being showcased at the Architect Biennale in Venice.”
