“Standing Textile(s)” are built up, thread by thread, on a custom-made weaving loom. 3D-woven configurations are experimentally discovered on the spot, creating intriguing tactile volumes. The lack of support and hollowness might make them seem on the edge of breaking, but their open structures are strong and sturdy.

This new method of weaving allows for endless possibilities in shape, use of colour, and material and, therefore, in application. From brightly coloured, recycled plastic dividing walls to sound reducing lamps from paper yarn.

“Standing Textile(s)” arose from an experimental textile research, driven by the desire to bring textile into the interior in a different way than we are used to. The research consciously awards the value of artisanal textile production techniques, explores its unseen possibilities, and questions the use of textiles today.

An urge to create a new and more tactile identity and atmosphere, lead me to research new materials for a new skin for the “Standing Textile(s)” sculptures. The research resulted in an acoustics improving special edition collection, including this one of a kind sculpture and lampshade, “Rae”. The lightweight 3D, handwoven structures are coated with an eco-friendly material, made from a mixture of recycled paper fibers, and biodegradable glue, which, once applied, not only leaves an attractive tactile surface, but absorbs sound and improves acoustics within interiors.
