Description

GRADIENT Series 2021

For her limited series of blankets, Emma Terweduwe threads new life into artisanal crafts of the past, combining her sensibility for strikingly contemporary graphic designs with the traditional process of jacquard weaving. In collaboration with B & T Textilia – a high-end local weaving company – Terweduwe presents two plaid blankets woven in wool, mohair, and cotton, each uniquely finished by hand.

Using natural materials, like wool and cotton, with subtle yet expressive properties, her woven works reveal an organic and tactile feeling, brought into the present by bold graphic patterns.

Hand-finished with a crochet technique, she adds further playful details in colour and texture, underlining the unique quality of each piece. With different designs on either side of each blanket, these pieces can be repositioned, redisplayed and enjoyed again from new perspectives at their owners’ discretion.

About the designer


Emma Terweduwe

Emma Terweduwe (°1996) is a textile designer based in Ghent, Belgium. In 2019 she graduated with a master degree in Textile Design at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Ghent. Since then she runs her own textile studio where she works on her designs, focusing on consciously jacquard woven objects for interior and fashion. Emma’s work is defined by the use of raw and natural materials that are subtle yet expressive such as wool and linen. By felting and manipulating, the woven fabrics change: They shrink, move and distort. In that way the materials start expressing their most tactile self. Texture, structure and color are very significant in her work, tactility is what it is all about. In that way she criticises our fast and visually driven society, by creating textile pieces that are meant to touch our tactile senses. “Through a series of carpets, blankets and scarfs I invite the user to thoughtfully touch, feel and treasure. “

Curated by

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.
