Changing the look of our own carpets every day would be quite impossible if there wasn’t Kinder modern.
In fact, the design brand, mostly dedicated to furniture and carpets for kids, launched a product line, the so called Kinder Ground, which is only specialized in carpets.
The first collection created by the brand has been Modular Carpets, a series whose shape has only three forms: triangle, hexagon and rhombus. Each of the three shapes has 37 different patterns. This is the reason why it is possible to combine shapes and forms in more than 50.000 different ways, making us become the designer of our own carpet.
Moreover, Kinder Ground has also chosen pop colours and patterns, avoiding colours with a strong gender reference such as pink and light blue.
The collection aims to be a true tribute to geometry and also reminds Bauhaus toys, such as the ones created by Alma Siedhoff-Buscher, simple coloured blocks with which it was possible to create many compositions.
The goal of this toys, such as the one of Kinder Ground carpets, is to develop children’s fantasy. Indeed, this carpets have so many colours and shapes that are also attractive for adults!
Moreover, Kinder Modern has also an adult-fitted carpets line: its name is Artist Collection and is the result of the collaboration between the brand-founder Lora Appleton and the ceramist Cody Hoyt.
The founder has always been fascinated by the artist’s works. That’s the reason why she decided to choose some of Hoyt ceramics in order to bring colours and shapes onto the wool that composes the Kinder modern carpets.
The final result is a series of four charming carpets, characterized by non-conventional shapes and forms. Anyhow, what strikes the most are the patterns, that seems to remember the Earth topography, the skins of some animals (anche se tu hai scritto materiali nel sito, non sapevo come tradurlo) and of course the texture of the Hoyt’s ceramics.
To conclude, Kinder modern proposes itself as a brand capable of speaking a universal language, understandable by every age group!
