Textile Sketch | Room Divider

laser cut, welded, blown up metal | 130 x 40 x 180 cm | 2011

Part of a furniture collection that brings flat and mobile textile shapes to life in solid heavy metal; the different techniques Kiki discovered in a metalworkshop inspired her "to capture the delicate nature of fabrics: laser-cutting lace, 3D laser-cutting piping, welding and blow-torching fringe, coating gold and nickel thread, and even attempting to fluff-up a metal pillow!" A first sketch of cut and folded textile pieces results in a room divider with a flat and textile feeling.
