squeezed and hot
Floor covering which reacts on pressure/heat.Heavy things leave bigger marks and the other way round


The idea bases on the thought, that all our steps and also objects leave marks. With this idea of floor covering, it is possible to make this marks visible and giving them a more aesthetic expression. As heavier you are as bigger is the mark and also the other way round! The shape of the mark orients itself at the object that left it. For example, a more angled shape leaves a more angled mark as a human shoe. Furthermore is it heat sensitive. Air circulation might also take effect on the floor. So if you open a window or a door while entering a room the cover color might change a bit.

The function, the cover consists of 2 layers. A gel mat with a semi-liquid colored gel and a slip-free transparent cover, where you finally walk on.

Which problem does your idea solve?

Replacement of monotonous, boring floor coverings.

How does your idea solve the problem?

A permanent changing of shapes and colors design a fascinating walkable floor cover.

What is the benefit of your idea for the target group?

My idea gives a innovative approach of a new floor cover which is never getting boring cause there will be permanently designed new shapes.

Which materials are you using and why?

semi-liquid gel and a transparent cover, e.g. walkable glass or another transparent material (doing material research)
