NYCxDesign Highlights: Silicone Rugs, Kitchen-In-A-Box, Moto-Lights
Five product picks inspired by materials, behavior or natural phenomena
The second round of products from 2016 NYCxDesign each are inspired by the out of the ordinary, whether it be a material, a behavior or a natural phenomena. These five example show what is possible when designers look beyond the expected and invent what we haven't seen before.
Silicon Rugs by Shore Rugs
London-based Shore Rugs creates hand woven floor coverings that can be used inside or outside. The chunky cord is a silicone-based material that is waterproof, UV resistant and non-slip. The company says the cushioning properties of their rugs can reduce fatigue at standing workstations and desks. (exhibited at ICFF)
