Discovered at the Milan Salon, we immediately fell for the creations of Studiovanderscheer
“After having graduated from the Eindhoven Academy, I worked as an independent industrial textile designer and developed my expertise in colour”.
“The challenge in my creations reside in the use of traditional materials and the innovating ways in which they are applied. I am always looking to further the limits of what is possible. By observing colour, I understood that this was my path, my second nature… but the starting point has always always been the thread.” Her line is varied, carpets, poufs, kitchen linen, textiles for sofas, plaids etc.. most of the textiles made by Liset van De Scheer are made at the Tilburg Museum of textile, made in Holland !!
Material more than nature!
The principle of manufacturing is amazing, the result is astounding and very very… natural! The collection is made out of vegetables, flowers in their natural forms, freshly pressed and then numerically printed, an example: a typically Dutch motif, tulips… but also a ton of other plants. A rainbow of coulours and flowers! Bo Reudler the creator displayed his collection at the latest Design Salon in Milan, a veryh fresh, elegant and poetic realisation.
Simone Post is a textile designer that is constantly experimenting, just as well with materials as with the manufacturing procedures. She collaborates with Vlisco, important manufacturer of batik tissues for the African market for a series of carpets and thereby discovers a work that is way above the industry’s normal limits. The Post-Vlisco collaboration thereby created a respectful collection of the environment, high quality norms, (waste disposal) surprising given its beauty and its industrial aesthetics. Her creations are superbly put into value in the palace in Milan.
Still at the Eindhoven Design Week, our eyes were drawn by Roos Soetekouw, this young and pretty textile designer. After her studies at the Amsterdam Fashion Institute she was found and selected to decorate the bedrooms of the very fashionable hotel The Exchange in Amsterdam.
Her materials are a combination of audacious colours and different materials; she mixes cotton, wool, linen, mohair and even a few strings of rubber or polyester. The end result is superb, original, elegant and transports you in her dreamlike and poetic universe Roos suggest amongst other things, plaids, cushions, decorative panels… I adore her plaid “Fun Green”, very natural with its coppery accents! Young sparkling designer just like her collection, to follow closely…
We were strolling through the Paris Design Week and our jaws droped at the sight of a modern and ludic furniture collection. What we really liked was the project in its global-ness: The students (ESAD from Reims) followed the production chain of local companies and therefore put emphasis on the “Made in Ardennes:”. This association allowed them to recreate their ideas, they were given the green light and within 2 months a prototype was born! Double interest: to dynamise/ relaunch industrial tissue and finance students by making diverse workspaces available (wood, textile, metal, plastic, carton, glass, concrete…) Many thumbs up for the companies and students. Initiative to pursue “without moderation” in France
Not to be forgotten for this summer: ‘Les toiles du soleil’
Their creative work is inspired by samples that have been found in archives and recreated identically, or crafted differently to be better adapted to the big colourful trends of nowadays. Moreover the colours and the rhythm of the stripes have evolved to render the fabrics more modern.
You can find fabrics for deck chairs, cushions, dinner sets, cloths and curtains… Everything that goes along with your desires!
