This project was a collaboration with Jordi Piera, Laura’s twin brother. Jordi is a great light designer. We decided to use Jordi with one of our silk scarf designs to build a light box. Jordi was delighted with the idea and he worked on the project last July (2013), while he was temporarily visiting Barcelona.
The textile design comes from an original old print that Laura owns from her grandfather’s collection. After Maria adjusted the size and colors, we produced a hand-made seam geometric silk scarf.
For us this light box project is the result of combining textile, graphic and product design. We are really grateful for Jordi’s contribution and really happy with the result. The print became alive with the light.
Below you’ll see Jordi’s work in progress and the original scarf.
