Deluge – 3D curtains
By turning round the order of the net and curtain a 3-dimensional effect is being introduced as a window darkening system. Especially for Salone del Mobile Eric created a landscape titled Deluge consisting out of 2 layers of silk organza, confronting us with a reality that is either poetic as well as overwhelming and hits you right in the face. At a time where nature disasters are breaking records we cannot ignore that earth’s power is something we live with or once will become a part of. Price range, starts at € 150,- per square meter.
Curtains for private apartment, which has been designed by Ooze Architects. For an apartment at the seaside of Knokke, Belgium, we were asked to design curtains for the living and bedrooms. The living room has a view on the sea, and for this we created 3 layers of 'voile' curtains, working as a 3D panorama, with on every layer different boats in depth, drawn by Eric Klarenbeek. The backside view of he apartment is poor due to the facing housing block. Therefore we created two layers of curtains. One thick light absorbing curtain, with the dutch dunes, and one layer of a thin voile, with plants and animals. All photographed by Eric Klarenbeek, on the island Texel in the Netherlands. Especially at night it's difficult to distinguish whether its real or virtual, giving you a feeling of being able to step out of your door, right in the fields.
