Woven Image Imagination Partner Back to Projects

This project, titled ‘Urchin’, was created as part of the Woven Image ‘Imagination Partner’ campaign and photographed by Jonathan Wherrett.
Thinking about how we use fabric outdoors, ideas came to mind of dwellings or shelters in their simplest form – teepees, yurts, tents, shells. In keeping with nature (and protecting us from nature) they are simple, functional and beautiful. Initial designs based on traditional teepee structures led to an exploration of more unconventional forms, rounded, organic objects reminiscent of urchins, caves or sea pods.
They are shelters for surfers, hideyholes for kids, objects for the curious.
