FEAT - the Cell (2006)

From the artistic project FEAT where I designed patterns for fabric. Five invited designers and artists then interpreted and used these fabrics and made garments for real or fictional heroes. From the left over fabric I created a replica of the Nelson Mandela cell at Robben Island. The project and the following two exhibitions in Malmö and Stockholm in 2006 and 2007 were a homage to Nelson Mandela who has always been aware of the power and tension in textiles. The project is documented at www.laurien.se

Open Source Yamamoto (2006)

Garment by textile designer Klara Persson as part of the project FEAT. Klara Persson created an intriguing coat by combining my fabric design [tu:] with an open source garment pattern by Yamamoto - adding textile techniques like quilting and embroidery. The project is documented at www.laurien.se
