amongst many other invited talents, german textile designer elisa strozyk is showcasing her wooden textiles carpet made from veneer offcuts. her technique in creating this piece is to laser cut the veneer pieces and bond them onto fabric. the wooden carpet can lie flat on the floor, but can also be playfully positioned due to its surprisingly flexible form. conceptually, her work intends to look at materials in new ways. she is interested in re-evaluating our presumptions about the resources we use, especially as our environmental wealth continually diminishes today.
