Red carpets have always been something of a mystery. Sure, red is a dynamic and lush carpet but, sometimes, they are so much the bright blood red center of attention that when they roll it out it is hard to not see it as something human – a tongue or perhaps of a stream of blood. This rolling red carpet design blends a pragmatic need to have rugs in certain spaces with a strange play on spilling blood.
At each landing, the transition between circulation space and interior rooms is made by ‘spilling’ the red carpet into the room in an amorphous pool. Blood references aside, this is quite a dynamic way to engage people between spaces and create a sense of connection between two disparate types and functions of interior space.
