Do you remember the old fabric lamp shades with fringe edges? I love how they evoke the urge to run your finger through the rim. In these pieces, I was exploring materials that invite you to touch them. Choosing carefully colors of the fringes and finding the right combination makes all of the pieces unique.
Touching on different aspects is the central theme in my work. I concentrate on how we feel different materials, what kind of materials you feel urge to touch and what not. Choosing materials and the effect of different materials on the user experience is one big part of my research. How come some materials are more inviting than the other ones? For example is velvety soft surfaces, and tassels or fringes something you just feel need to touch?
