Altered Form Collection

May 19, 2014

The continuous transformation of energy throughout nature is the focus for the Altered Form Collection introduced by Milliken’s global floor covering division. Inspired by the first law of thermodynamics, the collection takes an inquisitive view of the earth’s natural resources as it transitions from one form to another—and through that transition, creates inspiring pattern formations. Dandelion (as shown here), one pattern within the collection, illustrates the exploration of a simple dandelion in a micro point of view. From a blossoming flower evolving into a seed pod transported by the wind, the design reveals nature’s simplest but most powerful transformation of raw energy—self-renewal.
