Textile Collection Mimics Technological Surfaces
Dutch designer Lianne Polinder's collection mimics technology in three different patterns
Art imitates life, so it should come as no surprise that as our life becomes more technologically centered art will increasingly imitate technology. Textile designer Lianne Polinder’s newest collection does so by blending one of the softest crafts with some of the hardest tech.
The showcase design in the collection is a series of blue, red and green pixels separated by horizontal black lines. The pattern imitates what’s in a standard LCD monitor: microscopic crystals of each color which produce the image on your screen by brightening or darkening each of the three pixels. Polinder used Pa bolt of the fabric to make a full-length skirt which she showed suspended above a background and floor covering of the same fabric.
