What's A Head In Design? Hair-Inspired Rugs

Anique Noordman's special talent for creating new materials was witnessed by the design world even before her recent graduation from the Design Academy Eindhoven in the Netherlands last Spring.  But her graduation project, Hairy Carpets, should give a major jolt to her career as a designer.

Noordman's creations are made from new hair-like materials she has discovered and new ways of coloring materials, so prepare for blond, brunette, white and, of course, red-colored carpets. But the carpet weaves even reflect the fashion of the hair style.

Here, inspired by the wavy white silken wisps of hair, is one of Noordman's Hairy Carpet designs.

I know Ms. Noordman's Hairy Carpets have been inspired by afros, braids, long beards and the like, but I can't wait to see when her own Hairy Carpet designs start inspiring new hairstyles!
