Red alert: Re-vive Carpets by rENs & Desso are the result of a Dutch design duo and a global floor coverings corporation teaming up to upcycle designer rugs from outdated collections, by manually overdying them in an environmental action-signifying red.
Details: rENs have used the color red, calling attention to the problem of waste, through several projects. Desso is pursuing a new, circular economic model, that requires design to recycle, reuse and remanufacture.
Designer: rENs is dueling designers Renee Mennen and Stefanie van Keijsteren, based in Eindhoven, Netherlands, operating since 2008. Desso, headquartered in Waalwijk, Netherlands, is a leading carpet and artificial turf manufacturer, active in over 100 countries.
