Elisa Strozyk had us at Wooden Carpet, the beautifully crafted isometric floor covering made from hard wood, but we’ll take her Accordian Collection too. A designer with a penchant for surfaces and surprising manipulations of very traditional materials, this latest work created in collaboration with artist Sebastian Neeb, continues with Elisa’s affinity for creating unusual textiles.
The carefully constructed folds of a cabinet door or lampshade allows for a certain flexibility, generating a “new experience” for the material and allowing a “free and sculptural form” that is very much part of the Strozyk trademark.
Elisa will be showing as part of a group show at Milan next week called The Threads That Bind Us, see here for more details.
