‚Textiles in the kitchen‘ is a design project that reflects the craft of cooking - on fabrics, creating the perfect bridge between Kvadrat Textiles and Reform. In the designs for our window installation, I tried to depict a working process that develops into a worked-out fabric pattern with each panel of fabric.
In addition, I designed 3 tablecloths for a great dinner in the evening after the workshop, based on the design of the window exhibition.
All fabric designs are hand painted and printed.
Have a look at my work process.
Our project started with an extensive textile design workshop in Kvadrat‘s Munich showroom. I tried to convey the art of building a pattern design and transforming it onto a tea towel by hand. Including many different printing techniques and showing the attendees how to use them creatively on the lovely Kvatrat fabrics.
It was important to me that the feeling of independent and experimental development of material, as in the workshop, is also visible in the installation.
Altogether the result is an artistic textile installation that is now displayed at Reform Cph Munich's showroom, Müllerstr. 42. Drop by and enjoy Reform's beautiful kitchens combined with hand-painted designs on Kvadrat textiles.
