Project Description

Is this textile?

Being a member of Kontempo Collective this is the contribution Iben made for their first group exhibition #isthistextile during 3 Days of Design in Copenhagen 2016. Kontempo’s main focus is to question and spread their knowledge about what contemporary textile design is or can be today. Most people think of textile as clothing but many textile designers work with all kinds of materials. In common they often have their love for techniques, colour and materials. For this art object the idea was to draw graphic lines with textile. The binding technique Iben learned by working as a florist for several years. All textiles are vintage, project leftovers or second hand, and underline the sustainable touch that Iben highly prefer to leave on her work.
