Object Carpet rolls out the recyclable red carpet 

Object Carpet and the Berlinale Film Festival have combined to introduce a full recyclable red carpet for the 15-25 February event.

The company has previously supplied the red carpet for past festivals but this year’s is the first to use its Duo technology.

The carpet’s pile is made from recycled ECONYL polyamide yarn, the backing and hotmelt adhesive is 100% polyester. The carpet is then heat-treated to separate the two materials which are returned to supplier Aquafil. 

The materials can then be re-used to make new carpet and the process repeated. Object Carpet has spent a decade finalising Duo. ‘We are proud that our innovative Duo technology is making an important and tangible contribution to a sustainable future without waste and material excess,’ says Daniel Butz, Object Carpet owner.

The carpet is shown being fitted outside the Theater am Potsdamer Platz, complete with its R2R label, indicating its recyclability.
