low-tech building

from Tami

Elizabeth Whelan experiments in her low-tech studio to discover high-tech textile solutions for the furniture and apparel industry. I’m inspired by her brightly lit studio containing a small dye-lab and loom. Sketching patterns from nature; creating new yarns by combining together anything from silk to thermoplastics; mixing colors through dying fiber; building structure on her small loom.  Recognized for her award winning’Form-Sensing Mesh’ textile used on the Liberty Chair for Human Scale.  She now has moved on to equipment for Nike. Found through FastCoDesign.com. Photo from her web site.
