Constructed Textiles 2020


"We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates." Junichiro Tanizaki.

Spotlight is a collection of constructed designs that change in pattern and expression when exposed to different lighting conditions. The collection has been created with intensions for the application of interior furnishings and lampshades, designed to promote self-wellbeing in the home through a magical ambiance.

Light is an important aspect for all areas of design; whether it’s how it is used or the lack of light available, each situation will present both disadvantages and advantages to the design. For this project, light is used in ways that will change the original expression and characteristic of a design, whether it’s taking an aspect of the design away or emphasising hints of new motifs that didn’t seem to be noticeable before in the natural light.
