Architextiles (Acoustic Textiles) by Aleksandra Gaca
2017 - 2018, Golden A' Textile, Fabric, Textures, Patterns and Cloth Design Award Winner
Weaving is an ancient technology, I like to honour the emotional, deeply human quality of woven textiles while constantly pushing the boundaries of the industry. Every step I take inspires me to go further. My innovations focus on creating improved structures with better acoustic and insulating effects, using more sustainable materials and designing fresh pattern and colour combinations.
Architextiles is a series of sound absorbing textiles with a woven 3D structure. Due to their ribbed texture, these fabrics absorb sound waves much better than flat textiles. Thus contributing to a more muted environment. These textile panels combine two features: noise reduction and decoration. The undulating surface creates a play of light and shadow. This conceptual approach lies at the intersection of art, design and architecture.
