Florian Pucher’s Land Carpets

Photo Credit: Florian Pucher

After attending grad school, Austrian born architect and furniture designer Florian Pucher started out as an architect in China and decided that he wanted to design items on his own. Fascinated by what he saw from his airplane window, he soon began making carpets based on satellite imagery of farmland. The result is Landcarpet, a conceptual series that can be purchased directly from the designer. Pucher states that he was always fascinated by the landscapes he flew over and thought it would make interesting floor coverings. They include maps from Europe, Africa, the United States and the Netherlands, complete with corresponding flower-colored fields. (Cows not included).
