‘Standing Textile(s)’ was born out of the fascination for textile crafts.
Textile crafts enable a person to create something by hand relatively fast with relatively little means.
Can you explain more the idea of multidisciplinary that you use to describe your work?
My designs start in ideas or in concepts, not in end products.
By 3D- weaving these textile sculptures I’m proposing the idea of textile as a beautiful new building material, with endless possibilities in application.
Can you tell me a little about the design process, how do you start your design?The volumes are built up, thread by thread, on a custom-made weaving loom.3D-woven configurations are experimentally discovered on the spot.Weaving, knitting, crocheting, knotting etcetera are all very approachable ways to create, but unfortunately are often seen as old fashioned.I wanted to shine a different light on textiles and textile crafts, by using textile in the interior in a different way than solely as upholstery.
