TOTEM DESIGN CO. installed the Woven Space exhibit at CUTMR in January 2017. The interactive Pom Mosaic™ spanned 16' long and 8' high, and displayed thousands of colourful 'carpet poms' in vibrant patterns.
Creating a Pom Mosaic™
Carpet poms are what our TDC rug designers use to select the colours for each bespoke Totem Rug. These ‘poms’ are like little fibre pixels, and come in all types of yarn like wool, bamboo silk and viscose. There are also specific colour codes attached to each one of them. These colourful 'carpet poms' are literally the PANTONE system for rug design, and we use them everyday as our most important tool when designing bespoke rugs.
The installation was fully interactive, and we encouraged people to move the 'carpet poms' around to create new exciting patterns.
