10 More Awesome Floors!

Following up on our most popular post ever from about 2 years ago, today I have 10 more amazing floors to show you.

1. Look, don't walk

This is an installation in the Woodbury University Hollywood Gallery. The source page on this is great because it shows, just with photographs, how the piece was put together.  

2. Walk on Water?

This one is in the Kunstraum München ("Art area Munich") in Munich, Germany. Once again, the source of the image has more pictures, none of the making (which was done entirely with magic markers!), but many more showing off the effect she created!  

3. Don't Draw on the Wall

...draw on the floor?

Using the same tool as the water floor above, a marker, the homeowner did this herself! The source document has more pictures and a video.   [caption id="attachment_1558" align="alignright" width="450" caption="Modular, multi-purpose flooring"] Modular, multi-purpose flooring[/caption]  

4. Flooring for End Tables

Blocks of wood, laid as tiles, can be pulled up and stacked into a table or sitting space anytime you need extra furniture. Extra tiles could be stored under the couch. After you build it.   Source                  

5. A Rock and a Soft Place

Pebble Carpet

This set of large, beach style stones is actually a big carpet. You can fall on it, as long as you don't install it over a bunch of knives pointing up. That would ruin the fabric.

6. Power Generating Floor Tiles

One of the 'green' initiatives at a car show in France was the use of these tiles, which generate electricity as people walk on them. In the home, you might power a Christmas tree bulb or two. In a public place, though, there might have been some worthwhile gains.

7. Other Tiles That Change When Stepped On

These aren't quite like at illuminated tiling we highlighted a few years ago, but they are similar. Left alone, the fluid in the tiles is clear. Once walked upon, color springs forth in the form of blooming, inky flowers. The needed functionality also renders the flooring soft underfoot!                  

8. In Home Pond

Pond

We see images of these being done in public places, looking like there is a hole in the sidewalk with a monster or some ballroom dancers under it. This one was done in a man's home. The source I used has a series of images showing the making. The artist's own website may as well, but I found it unresponsive to my clicks, and I also couldn't read his last name, I'm sorry to say, because it's really nice work! His first name is probably Mike. Look him up!  

9. Internet Maps Floor

This corridor takes advantage of how commonplace it has become for us to see our world, even our homes, from above. The source has more images. It looks like a fascinating walk to take.  

10. The Floorless ______

What would a list of amazing floors be without at least one "Good heavens, there's no FLOOR in here!" shot? This one is in a bathroom, and very akin to the elevator we highlighted in the earlier post. This is the most popular kind of gimmick flooring done.
