HeyMat Mix Mat
Based in Oslo, Norway, Kristine Five Melvær holds master’s degrees in industrial design from the Oslo School of Architecture and Design and in visual communication from the Oslo National Academy of the Arts. Through her work, Melvær investigates and bridges the disciplines of product design and graphic design, focusing on realizing communicative potential of different objects and materials as a means to create emotional bonds with users. Her Mix Mat (2016) features a mélange of rectangular shapes in complementary hues that come together to create a contemporary pattern reminiscent of traditional woven textiles. This high-absorbency, long-lasting mat is manufactured from 50% post-consumer polyester and 50% recycled plastic bottles. Suitable for use indoors and out with a rubber backing that prevents slippage. Machine washable. Made in Belgium.
