About the collection

Light Studies

In my work I strive for a scientific approach to design that is unifying for humanity. To achieve an objective essence of aesthetics that erases barriers between cultures, I had to find something that is defining for beauty everywhere. Instead of using an aesthetic defined by hand I needed to let nature define the impression. I managed to find a way to permanently capture sunlight shining on textile with a photographic process. The chosen shapes and colours are the result of mixing a vast amount of cultures and subcultures, and of how shapes and colours occur naturally in nature.
