Material Delight

7th November 2013

By far the most eye catching and tactile project shown at the Design Academy this year was from Masters student Matthias Borowski His project titled 'The Importance of the Obvious' explored the idea that all materials have their own unique properties and qualities.

Taking inspiration from the material possibilities of food he created a series of objects with tactile and appealing surfaces and textures that were jellied and bobbled.

Also playing with engaging tactility was Jolijn Pasmans with her soft Concrete. Pushing the boundaries of concrete in its raw state, she has added cloth, silicone and fibres to create tactile and decorative raw surfaces.

Her project plays with our perception of tactility and surface decoration with carpet being replaced by hairy concrete and what would be soft upholstery with concrete and silicone.
