“Sitting on a train, we often see passing sceneries as a rush of color,” Isa Glink said. “When we’re up in the air on a plane, we’re able to see different landscapes and traces of man’s influence on the environment. When we drive, we’re hopefully looking forward but what we see in our peripheral vision are stripes and grids. When we walk, we’re able to slow down and zoom into nature on a microscopic level. Altogether, these different scales form a telescopic and panoramic view of Earth.”
The Hamburg-based Kinnasand creative director was describing her new Spheres collection, a vast range of textile variations set for use as curtains and carpets. Available in everything from nylon-like blends to tensile open structure and twill weaves, the new product line is cast in a color range spanning from soft, muted, and earthy hues to sharp neon tone and photo transfer motifs.
