Designer: Kallol Kumar Mohanty
At Ample Sample, they think that design isn’t always about clients and deadlines. They challenge you to “Rethink. Reuse. Upcycle” and make something useful and beautiful with carpets. One of the ‘2008 entries’ on the site is the Carp-Board, a computer keyboard where the carpet replaces the plastic. The smooth surface of the carpet allows you to experience a new level of comfort when you are typing on it. The Carp-Board is not just about replacing the plastic with carpet, but it also features blue LED lighting that complements the black matter carpet. I hope the designer has taken into consideration the placement of the PCB for the carpet keyboard.
