Super Pack: 7 Carpet Critters by UM Projet x DIFFA

View all 3 Photos

Clean, colorful, and sociable, Carpet Critters make the perfect household companions for children and adults alike. François Chambard of UM Project put together this motley assortment of miniatures, and each packs a personality to match its custom shape, texture, and form. A mailbox-shaped friend is covered in a fuzzy gray felt and stares with a complacent expression, while an associate – a white block that grew some colorful spots and sprouted six legs – tiptoes in the distance. This team, available as Super Pack: 7 Carpet Critters, rallies for a good cause. As a collective entry amidst 31 other works from a variety of artists and designers, the auctioning of all of the art ultimately supports DIFFA, Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS. Poignantly so, Carpet Critters is a microcosmic representation of the fact that all unique individuals can unite to make a difference, whether it be as small as a instigating a smile or as impactful as saving a life.
