Textiles


Pack Components

Mixed media


Through my work I explore how I can use the principles of Design for Disassembly to both challenge the life span of textile products and to create a visual design language. I create pattern through the construction of a product.

Packs is a system of base components. Each component is constructed using one material and one simple technique.

I assemble these components to build an evolving range of functional three-dimensional check patterns or packs, that can be disassembled, reassembled and combined to be used to transport things during all kinds of travel.
