I am really impressed by the talented and creative designer/artist Elisa Strozyk's work. She mixes paper, textiles, and wood! I love the way she cuts open wallpapers and turn them into new, semi-transparent wall dividers (bottom pics). But am especially intrigued by the furnitures and pendants she's makes out of a material she calls Wooden Textiles (the three items in the middle below).
Wooden Textile is half wood, half textile. It's something between hard and soft. It looks and smells familiar but feels strange, as it is able to move and form in unexpected ways.To transform hard wood into a flexible surface Elisa Strozyk deconstruct it into pieces, which she then attach to a textile base.
The new material can then be used in different ways: as flooring, curtains, drapes, plaids, upholstery or furniture. Depending on the geometry and size of the tiles, each design behaves differently. See much more of her stunning work on her webpage.
