The art weaving has been around for centuries and started as a utilitarian need in items such a vessels and structures used for housing. Weaving captures cultural significance in items such as rugs and baskets, with surface patterns of icons and sacred shapes. Annie Albers brings to mind the modernist belief that form and material are for the pure aesthetic of form and material. Recently in design we are seeing a reemergence of wicker, softening hard spaces with natural elements that are inspired by the woven structure. The below renderings are an example of our take on playing with surface and function. Weaving becomes inspiration for surface pattern, grounding a room in natural materials and also giving structure to what resides on top.
