Textile Sketch by Kiki van Eijk

This collection of furniture by Dutch designer Kiki van Eijk looks like it’s made of textiles but is in fact fashioned from solid metal.

The Eindhoven designer used laser-cutting, welding and blow-torching plus gold- and nickel-coated thread to give the illusion of lace, piping, fringing and crochet.

Here’s some more information from Kiki van Eijk:

Textile Sketch

Part of a furniture collection that brings flat and mobile textile shapes to life in solid heavy metal; the different techniques Kiki discovered in a metalworkshop inspired her “to capture the delicate nature of fabrics: laser-cutting lace, 3D laser-cutting piping, welding and blow-torching fringe, coating gold and nickel thread, and even attempting to fluff-up a metal pillow!”

A first sketch of cut and folded textile pieces results in a table with a flat and textile feeling.
