For SHELTER, Henny has created a series of textile covered screens that will be hung to make an elegant but enclosed space. Each of the fabric frames have been decorated by unthreading the original textile weave to make a series of graphic shapes in the material that create subtle opaque windows. This simple process works to offer more with less.

September visit to Henny’s studio
Experimenting with different materials and unthreading patterns.
Henny van Nistelrooy has long been fascinated by and focused on working with textiles; from light shades made out of metres of jacquard-woven fabric, to robust furniture made out of Kevlar fibre, his practice continues to raise pertinent questions and provide intelligent design solutions by innovating new processes and combinations between traditionally made and highly technological textiles.
