Possibly the most instagrammed installation of Designday was one hosted by carpet and rug specialist Artisan Flooring. The super-sized installation by Microsoft Surface and street art duo BMD was a 25m² room, built especially for the event.

The exterior was painted in simple block colours while inside, everything – including the ceiling, the floor, the walls, mugs, glasses, a television, couches, dining chairs and tables – was decorated with impeccable precision in signature BMD style. First, everything was painted white before being transformed with cartoon-like images of animals, creatures and everyday objects. The trio also collaborated on a competition, where attendees were invited to design their own rug to enter the draw to win a $1000 Artisan Flooring voucher (and we’re seriously envious of the winner).
