Nexus is the first textile produced from the design research undertaken by Balmond Studio. It is a modern interpretation of traditional textile wall hangings – an embroidered web derived from a set of algorithms that have complementarities embedded within them. The patterns, which bear resemblance to Islamic tiling, link this traditional imagery with intricate embroidery and create a new visual language – a dynamic cross between the delicacy of thread and the preciseness of digital line.
Nexus was commissioned by Wallpaper* as part of its Handmade exhibition at Brioni House, Salone Internazionale del Mobile, 2012.
