Photo-luminescent Textile Stained-glass: Day & Night Visions.
Surprise your senses with a poetic and technical artistic textile.
This artistic, 100% handmade textile piece is a technical development. It’s made thanks to the homemade, original, eco-friendly paint binders formulated by the A ZDesign Studio & Lab, including Geneviève Levivier as designer and Pierre Yves Herzé as researcher in chemistry specialized in eco polymer and pigments. The depth and wide range of original luminescent effects are also made possible thanks to the homemade formulations of specific new luminescent colorations. The inclusion of organic materials (eggshell, natural flowers) brings vivid effects to the vision. It also participates to the long term development in eco-design of the studio.
This Biomorphica textile can be made on measure for collector or interior decoration, also available without the frame.

Geneviève Levivier’s approach combines the sensibilities of a contemporary visual artist with personal innovative technologies, evidenced by her laboratory-like studio employing a chemist for R&D. By mixing the artistic gesture, organic materials, pigments and eco-friendly self-invented paint binders and bio-sourced fibres, Levivier defends a creation freely inspired by a mix of textile know-how and pictorial techniques.
As a designer, as well an artist, Geneviève Levivier is fascinated by the textile as a contemporary medium for its possibilities of movement, flexibility, interaction with space and light, as well as with the body, touch and sight.
She creates her textile works - the material itself of the textile, as well as the texture, the effects and the meaning of it - according to a place and a theme, to bring a dialogue between her Tapestries, the surrounding culture, architecture, and the light.
Therefore, Synesthesia is a notion that inspires her and that she amplifies in her current work, such as in her \"Eggshell Alchemy\" artwork , soundly placed in the perfect environment - with bird\'s song or wind blowing...
The body of work in this collection consists of pieces by Greek designers of the mainland and the diaspora, or international professionals who live and work in Greece. As a common theme we tackle the elusive notion of “Greekness” and how this transpires through the work of seemingly diverse and distinct individuals. In our attempt to define “Greekness”, we aim to raise questions about how this plays out in the work presented.
How do Greek designers view their identity? Is it through their effort to decipher their heavy heritage? Is form important in order to achieve a predisposed classic elegance, or is a philosophical disposition towards shape more poignant? Could it be simply a resourcefulness and DIY ethic to make up for the absence of design infrastructure?
How do Greek designers based abroad deal with their background? Could it be that they simply ignore it in order to finally free themselves? Is there a certain amount of innovation necessary in order to channel it into the new environment?
Finally, how do foreign designers see their work influenced by their Greek surroundings? Is it the reference through the use of noble materials such as marble or the abundance of natural light that makes their work unquestionably Greek? Or could it be something else they were seeking when they decided to move here, something abstract like humour or drama? Could their arrival finally mean a departure from Greek heritage’s self-reference?
The pieces that we present might seem ill-matched, but they share an important core element. They are confident in their narrative of a personal story of identity, that is either at peace or against the Greek archetype. Through this communication, they all describe a culturally mature and vibrant scene that is finally extroverted and coming of age.
