What: Workshop trying to redefine the perception of carpets
When: 2006 – and still going on
In the summer of 2006 SuperKo contacted international carpet manufacturer EgeCarpets in Herning, Denmark in order to try and redesign or rethink the way we perceive and use carpets.
EgeCarpets currently have a waste production of around 100.000 sqm. carpet a year. Part of the task was therefore also to come up with new ways of trying recycling or reuse this waste material.
The outcome of the workshop was a larger number of different ideas, which were presented at the half-yearly general managers meeting in December 2006. The response was very positive and SuperKo has afterwards been invited to be part of EgeCarpets new innovation board, which is currently involved in the process of trying to rethink and reinvent EgeCarpets for the future.
