As a textile designer, research and development are at the core of her approach. She is interested in ‘elementary’ surfaces which she consider as nomadic and multi-purpose elements. Limits between a piece of textile, a carpet or a blanket are sometimes blurry and that’s exactly what interests her when using materials and objects in interiors. Her work is about a minimum but sophisticated comfort.
The projects ‘Smock’ and ‘Tiles’ come from a first collection called ‘Moving Matters’. ‘Smock’ uses traditional smock techniques and adapt them to knit to bring elasticity and volume to textile materials. The same knit principle is declined, playing with different level of stretch and different constructions. It results in double sided blankets and covering. ‘Tiles’ is a modular floor and wall covering using felt wastes from industrial production. This covering is a warm alternative to tiling and offers different advantages: light product with insulation properties, articulated surface, easy to cut material. The tiles can also be used as a noticeboard.
