“15 years ago I was weaving for the very first time. I was heading to a metal scrap yard in Berlin, collecting beautiful metal stripes, that later created my first spatial architecture weaving models. I studied textile design at a small design university, Kunsthochschule Berlin Weissensee, following the educational design and art principles of Bauhaus. Walking the path of curiosity, I focused on materials, combining surface- and textile design with architecture and product design courses. In general, textile industry is one of the most challenging industries for our environment and corporate social issues. I strive to find new ways by exploring, learning and re-questioning established and rigid patterns - with the aim to change the game.”
