Hypnopompic - Kustaa Saksi
04/25/14 • 30 min
This video takes a look at the process behind producing one of Kustaa Saksi's Hypnopompic rugs at the Textiel Museum in Tilburg. Saksi realised ‘Hypnopompic’; a series of eight vivid large-scale tapestries. Hypnopompic means the dreamlike state of consciousness filled with illusions that can occur between waking and sleeping. The brightly coloured pieces combine recognisable creatures and organic designs with surreal visualisations. A wide range of natural and synthetic materials, from viscose, lurex and metallic yarns, to alpaca wool and mohair, add extra depth. The wall hangings on display have all been developed and produced in the TextielLab.

Das Haus of Louise Campell
02/16/14 • 5 min
Das Haus – interiors on stage is the simulation of a home at the IMM 2014. Every year a designer is invited to create a their vision of a home according to their personality. Louise Campbell created a structure of two overlapping barns with a footprint of 240 m2 and made of wooden beams, larch shingles and many different fabrics.
She designed “Das Haus” as a home “for him and her, for slow and fast, soft and hard, light and dark, colour and material, British and Scandinavian – with a tranquil space in the middle where everything fits together with some quirks, but no conflicts. And in this case, “him and her” doesn’t just mean male and female, but the masculine and feminine side within each and every one of us.
The High Line

The High Line is a public park built on a 1.45-mile-long elevated rail structure running from Gansevoort Street to West 34th Street on Manhattan's West Side.

It carried meat to the meatpacking district, agricultural goods to the factories and warehouses of the industrial West Side, and mail to the Post Office.
The High Line design is a collaboration between James Corner Field Operations (Project Lead), Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and planting designer Piet Oudolf.

Mindcraft15 Milan design week
04/22/15 • 11 min
One of the most impressive installations of this years Milan design week was at Chiostro Minore di San Simpliciano in the heart of the city. The exhibition Minecraft15 presented some of the best contemporary artists and designers in an amazing setting created by Danish/Italian design studio GamFratesi who was also in charge of the curating. The floors of the cloister were covered with a reflective surface creating an ‘in between’ space which was this years’ theme.
‘We chose the theme “In Between” because it reflects the fact that Danish craftspeople and designers work in a field of tension in between mind and craft. This exhibition covers the full range of that span, including fully developed ideas, conceptual qualities and sublime artistic and technical accomplishments, coupled with a unique understanding of the materials,’
