Unique furniture London - Arabstoday This collection of furniture by Dutch designer Kiki van Eijk looks like it’s made of textiles but is in fact fashioned from solid metal. The designer used laser-cutting, welding and blow-torching plus gold- and nickel-coated thread to give the illusion of lace, piping, fringing and crochet. Part of a furniture collection that brings flat and mobile textile shapes to life in solid heavy metal; the different techniques Kiki discovered in a metalworkshop inspired her “to capture the delicate nature of fabrics: laser-cutting lace, 3D laser-cutting piping, welding and blow-torching fringe, coating gold and nickel thread, and even attempting to fluff-up a metal pillow!” The Textile Sketch range includes a dining table, high table, low table, lamp, chair and room-divider.
