Dezeen Showroom: New York-based Talk Carpet has created the Climbing Roses carpet to raise awareness and money for those living with HIV and AIDS.

The Climbing Roses carpet is emblazoned with an abstract interpretation of a flower installation that was originally created by florist Jeff Leatham for the Getty Center in Los Angeles, California.

Leatham's installation was set against the building's travertine tile cladding, which Talk Carpet has visualised as a regular grid, while the roses are transformed into organic swirls.

These red swirls are also a reference to the red ribbon, which is worn to show support for people impacted by HIV and AIDS.

"We translated the walls to the base of our new flooring design by creating a traditional grid carpet pattern," said the brand.

"This adds a very minimal and elegant element to the overall design. On top of the base grid, we layered organic swirls – an abstract nod to the red ribbon logo."

Talk Carpet created the Climbing Roses carpet to mark the company joining the Specify with Care initiative, which is organised by the non-profit organisation Design Industries Foundation Fighting Aids (DIFFA).

Since January 2021, the brand has been donating one per cent of all revenues from the sale of its custom carpet range to the organisation.
