Geometric textiles


Mika Barr (Tel Aviv) is a textile designer who created a new kind of fabric. By using rubber coated cotton, the fabrics look like they are made of paper. "Folding A-Part" is a series of textiles that fold, fracture and turn in three-dimensional ways,  along the printed patterns. The more the fabric is creased, the better the effect of the folded parts.

Besides forming beautiful sculptural elements, the textiles can be used for interior products such as pillows and furniture upholstery. 

I love the idea of print adding a tactile structure to a fabric and changing the appearance of an interior product every time you use it. Wouldn't it be interesting to see how pillows in various homes would evolve over time?
