Satellite Photography Turned Into Charming Rugs

The Purple Rectangles Must Be The Tulip Fields


Hong Kong

Flying at 30,000 feet, you have the view of a god. Fields become blocks of color, rivers transform into abstract swirls, and cities become Lego-like grids.

Interior designer Florian Pucher brings the sensation of flight to the carpet beneath your feet. Called Landcarpets, his rugs start as satellite imagery, and then, following four weeks of hand-tufting New Zealand wool, become fuzzy, tactile carpets.

The carpets are each available in limited edition quantities of 88. The six-foot-by-four-foot pieces start at $1,200. Larger and custom weaves are priced upon request.
