UrbanRetreat, by Piadesign
This design is part of a bigger series of hanging structure designed for Novello Alpaca Farm in South Africa.
Working in close collaboration with Jan Jamieson from Novello Alpaca Farm in South Africa Piadesign has been developing a form of upholstery from the alpaca fibre. This function allows for the qualities of the fibre to be fully enjoyed: their softness and warmth is close to the body.
They combined the crafts of weaving and felting. These processes complement one another: the weave gives strength to the felt and the felt gives softness to the weave, thus forming a strong upholstered membrane.
