Inspired by a study on the color grey, the Impression collection, from which Paysage 1 is part, plays with the theme of density to create color neutral landscapes. Cold shapes, formed with different thickness’s of black and white wool yarns, create distinct graphical elements against a warm earthy background consisting of grey wool and linen.
A mist covers the landscape, which is created with soft grey tones in natural silk. The combination of these color variations linked to tactile sensations allows us to experience color in different ways.
The spectator can imagine a house, fields, a road, but is free to link visual memories towards the scenery of the rugs. This activates the object/user relation and allows a personal interaction.

CHAUD SIDE TABLE SERIES
Derived from a study on the color grey, the Chaud side table series are constructed out of paper composite and natural stone. Recycling colorful print rests and hand pressing them with chalk results in color neutral, stone like surfaces. Once pressed, the paper composites are still humid and can be bend. They are dried and held in a series of open stone moulds; different curves of the same length, which afterwards frame the base of the table.
Each paper form is unalike the other as the air dictates their shape during the drying process. United, the dried paper and the stone, fluid against rigid, warm against cold, young against old, challenge each other to create a series of architectural inspired side tables.
