Norwegian designer Siren Elise Wilhelmsen prototyped a real “magic” carpet that changes color depending of the temperatures
“Our natural environment is always changing” S.E Wilhelmsen says, “flowers are blooming at a certain temperature, leaves are falling off by another and the snow falls by temperatures below zero. In the same way the Season Carpet is sensible to temperature alteration and its colors and pattern is changing due to the surroundings; the weather and the season.”

“The carpet is braided in a three-color pattern, where the colors have different temperature sensibilities and will change color at different temperatures” the designer explained, “In this way, the carpet will change its look through the day and the year, depending on the environment.”
