rtmis: yfasmatik

berlin-based artist rtmis has created a new felt folding technique. the experimentation is with different wraps which led to a creation of three-dimensional and symmetrical patterns. a different profile for each side allows the combination of two different surface structures to integrate in one layer of material. it is flexible, and stable, so that it can be used for interior and furniture design or as a material in the fashion industry. the collection includes eight different patterns and is made of 100% wool. it was nominated for leinemann foundation (hfbk) design award and was exhibited at museum for arts and crafts in hamburg.
