Translating Inga Sempé artworks into a series of curtains, Sketches is infused with subtle interplays between yarns and design elements evoking a sense of drawing and graphic sequences. Intricate textures and tonal details intertwine with horizontal and vertical movements that create a comforting sense of order.
Plus plays with the perception of vertical and horizontal movement through prisms of texture and colour. It juxtaposes strong lines in contrasting hues to create a multidimensional grid characterised by shifts in tone, weight, and volume.
Fil-à-Fil offers a multifaceted rhythm of intricate details and fine lines that appear as stripes within stripes. Bold and impactful, these tactile elements have a handwoven look referencing original sketches by designer Inga Sempé.
Flame-retardant Rhythm embodies three-dimensional, morse code-like materiality by uniting irregular rhythms of volumes, colours and subtly graphic dots and lines.
Mash features an airy, irregular Jacquard construction outlined by multidimensional shifts. Woven with fine space-dyed yarns, it transforms the hand-drawn character of Inga Sempé's artworks into subtle materiality, evoking a sense of drawing with crayons.
Plus Minus has a gridded structure and offers a play of intricate graphic shifts that emerges from its surface. While it has the purity of a plain, it also integrates subtle horizontal and vertical rhythms that merge into its semi-transparent ground.
Twirl is a heavyweight pure linen with a dense double-sided woven construction. It is crafted with contrasting, thick, two-coloured twisted yarns and space-dyed, colour-matched yarns, which dissolve into its ground structure.
Fil is a plain with a subtle broken twill weave construction that stands out for its elegant, richly soft drape. Small contrasting dots of recycled silk play across its surface, infusing its expression with gentle graphic granularity.
Offering multifaceted and intricate details, bold and impactful, the Sketches series embodies subtle shifts into the most classical patterns and weaving. The distinctive tactility and multidimensional expression result from the combination of different materials and natural fibres juxtaposed: linen, cotton, recycled silk, hemp and more.
