They were on bicycles when inspiration hit Paul Ketz and Dilara Yesilova. Last spring, the founder of Paul Ketz Studio and his girlfriend, also a designer, were on a runway in Yesilova’s native Turkey when, pausing to catch their breath, they remarked: “It was like nature was waking up, ”Ketz recalls. “We were surrounded by meadows and fields of wild flowers and thought we could translate this landscape into a furnishing context. “

Back in Cologne, Germany, Ketz’s studio is where Springtime Carpet blossomed. “The furniture for sitting or lying is usually clearly defined,” says Yesilova, “but our object mixes the properties of a daybed, a rug and a huge pillow.” Hundreds of 1 1/2 inch diameter foam extrusions are tied to a round wool felt floor. Most are covered in lime green cotton-viscose, but sometimes there are reds and yellows that represent flowers. When stretched out, the foam spheres cradle the user and gently decompress like blades of grass in a lush meadow. Fittingly, the piece is available in the spring.
