Carpets Made From Google Earth Images


Munich-born designer David Hanauer makes rugs that look like old-school Persian carpets, but in reality feature carefully-selected screenshots pulled from Google Earth, usually taken from the Las Vegas or Los Angeles areas. The resulting patterns, created by repeating and reflecting images that Hanauer has lightly retouched (and in certain cases, still contain a Google watermark), are surprisingly beautiful — especially if you have an interest in city planning or aerial photography. Click through to get a better look at his designs, and if you’d like spruce up your apartment with one, they’re available for purchase (price by request) on his website
