City Dessins

Textile design

City patterns are patterns made of photographed Dutch street scenes mostly in cities lik.e Amsterdam, Rotterdam and The Hague. Dutch street scenes are often grey and lack colour. My objective was to make interesting visuals. Later, I thought it would be interesting to take the patterns of the images of hard city materials like bricks, concrete, glass and metals and to transpose them onto soft material. I used soft textiles like silks and wool to enhance these patterns. These textiles gave new dimensions to the patterns because of the different textures, transparencies and deformations. I made scarves of these textiles because of the different ways you can wear and form a scarf around your body.. Photography: Nelson Peterson. Models: Mandy Figaroa, Munira Ibrahim, Jacky Rooijakkers

The textiles were presented in the presentation of MOOOI during the Salone del Mobile 2016 in Milan.
