This Brussels textile designer’s work has already created major buzz online. Her pride and joy is this tactile, 3-dimensional island oasis – one that you can take apart - available exclusively at 66degrees.com.
Laure Kasiers is a master textile designer who brings a background in graphic design to the forefront. Using unconventional materials (including production scrap), she explores themes including mobility and contrast, in this case wrapped in the comfort and warmth of a soft rug – an avant-garde masterpiece.
Archipel is contsructed by a unique method of trimming fringes. Each piece of fabric is wrapped in around each other, creating gyres, or a vortex-like effect. Coloured straps are inserted to help emphasize the lapping of the waves against the islands, and give the water an iridescent look. The small, soft islands also serve as a seating area, and some are removable, doubling as additional floor seating.
