The Plankton Carpet is probably the first carpet that truly glows. The knots, which are coated with a phosphorescent colour, are knitted together in a blue base carpet made of Econyl® yarn. Once night arrives, the knots start to glow and paint a spectacular image of a glistening sea surface. The making of the Plankton Carpet is both a tribute to traditional fishing craft as well as a warning over the growing problem of overfishing and sea pollution. The carpet is made from recycled nylon waste, of which a part consists of abandoned fishing nets, also known as ghost nets, that drift around the ocean and are responsible for the needless death of countless marine animals.

The Mediterranean, as written in wood, stone, and velvet
Each piece of the collection Tales of the Adriatic tells a different story of the Adriatic, each keeps bringing us back to those familiar flavours, smells, and materials that are the essence of Mediterranean culture. Local traditional handicrafts and materials such as natural white stone from the island of Brač, weathered and twisted olive wood, and recycled fishing nets have come together to create the Fisherman’s Lamp, Olive Tree & Stone Table, Sea & Stone Table, Adrian Chaise Lounge, and the Plankton Carpet.
