***** Berlin-based artist 'rtmis' has created a new felt folding technique. A different profile for each side allows the combination of two different surface structures to integrate in one layer of material. It is flexible, and stable, so that it can be used for interior and furniture design or as a material in the fashion industry. Made of 100% wool. Nominated for leinemann foundation (hfbk) design award and was exhibited at museum for arts and crafts in Hamburg.
Another warm industrial home, this space uses lots of textured fabric - from upholstery to area rugs - to soften the effect of concrete walls and ceilings. The floors, in a dark natural wood, are also rustic in a welcoming way.
