Global Warming Rug by NEL for Nanimarquina

This might be the saddest home furnishings creation we've ever seen. It gets more sad under the jump...

Manufactured by Spanish rug and carpet company Nanimarquina and designed by NEL, the Global Warming rug is just as much about the message as it is of the form:

Global Warming contrasts the comfort and softness of a rug with a thorny problem that is specific to our time. Following the age-old tradition of using rugs as a means for communication and a cultural record, NEL is portraying global warming in a scene that invites us to reflect on our impact on today's world.
