Norwegian designer Siren Elise Wilhelmsen‘s ‘Season Carpet’ changes color at varying temperatures like a “soft thermometer.” The wool carpet is braided in a three-color pattern, each with a different temperature sensitivity. This causes the carpet to change how it looks throughout the day and the year, depending on the environment.
Our natural environment is always changing; flowers are blooming at a certain temperature, leaves are falling off by another and the snow falls by temperatures below zero. In the same way the Season Carpet is sensible to temperature alteration and its colors and pattern is changing due to the surroundings; the weather and the season.
