In this workshop participants learned how to make triaxial-weaves for a lot more than baskets. Baskets - that sounds boring. But when you discover them as intelligent pieces of 3D textile they become a lot more interesting. The way in which fibers come together in order to play specific functions within a basket is often so clever, that it feels a shame to only use this technique for something that holds your apples and pears.Triaxial-weaves everywhere.
Bertjan Pot is a designer, probably best known for his Random Light (1999) and his ongoing collection of masks. Both projects started as material research, which is basically the starting point of each product created by Bertjan Pot. The outcome is usually a product showing a fascination for techniques, structures, patterns and colors.
Most experiments start quite impulsively by a certain curiosity for how things would function or how something would look. From there Pot takes on challenges with manufacturers to explore possibilities and push the boundaries a bit. The reward for each challenge is a new one.
