Mexican design collective NEL have designed Global Warming Rug for Spanish textiles brand Nanimarquina. Global Warming contrasts the comfort and softness of a rug with a thorny problem that is specific to our time. Following the age-old tradition of using rugs as a means for communication and a cultural record, NEL is portraying global warming in a scene that invites us to reflect on our impact on today’s world. The rug features a felt polar bear on a small iceberg in a large sea of carpet.
Nice, though I feel the polar bear was unnecessary- it defeats the purpose of graphics to be so obvious.
