Fervent Carpet by Studio Siem

dust mites

A carpet that can be heated to 60˚C once every two months, killing all dust mites, allowing textiles to be used as they never have before.

"Textiles in the living environment create warmth and safety, regulate humidity levels and improve the acoustics of a space. Pillows, curtains, upholstery, mattresses and carpets all add to the emotional value of the home. But people who suffer from asthma have a problem with textiles because of their intolerance to dust mites. Should their homes stay cold and impersonal? Fervent is a carpet that can be heated to 60˚C once every two months, which kills the dust mites, allowing this group to use textiles where they could not before." Design by Studio Siem.
