From a kaleidoscope pattern topped with the image of Mr. Clean, his intestines exposed, the artist’s name across his waistline to the likeness of a partial moon, craters on the bottom and an open window cut into the smooth upper section, the images speak to the ironies that emerge when commerce and spirituality collide. The artwork spans the spectrum from complex to simple.

Seven mats produced by artists Daniel Arsham, Wim Delvoye, Eric Cahan, @earlboykins (Andrew Kuo’s idiosyncratic instagram identity), Jon Kessler, Kon Trubkovic and in-house Grey Area designers bear images inspired by sahasrara, the crown chakra. (When fully activated sahasrara is the highest experience of human evolution.) The underside of the mat is purple, the color that represents the chakra that resides at the top of the head.

The mats are made from eco-friendly PVC and can be purchased at greyarea.com.
