With Halloween just around the corner, these seemed appropriate. Dutch designer Bertjan Pot has a fascination for textiles and materials in general. While working and playing with materials and ideas he designed a collection of furniture and lighting with fellow friend and designer Daniel White. In similar fashion, these masks were initially the result of a materials experiment.
From Pot’s website:
I wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together I could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy. When I was about to give up on the carpet, Vladi came up with the idea of shaping the rope into masks. The possibilities are endless, I’m meeting new faces every day.
The masks, which started in 2010, have become an ongoing project and are available for purchase.
