Designer tells

How is your product related to the design brief; the box and the items in it?
The content of the box reminded me of my childhood treasures. It represented playfulness, sensuality and the idea of objects as mediators of memories. I was inspired to work playfully, intuitively and with a sensual focus.

Can you tell us a little bit about your product?
The room dividers Tint are inspired by sheer curtains that flutter in the wind. The dividers, made of printed silk fabric, are forming semi-transparent, living veils in space, moving with the wind or people passing. The room dividers question the amount of shielding needed in order to create zones, as a fragile and organic counterbalance to rigid room dividers.

How has your process been?
During the process I played with memories and associations and combined two-dimensional and three-dimensional expressions. I worked with textile print on silk and canvas, before processing textile and steel into three-dimensional objects. Four objects were worked on in parallel, and I completed two of them for this exhibition.
