The designer’s project is a collection of woven and knitted fabrics inspired by Polish modernist architecture and typography. The patterns are three‑dimensional. They are characterized by regularity, vertical and horizontal layout, and recurring elements. Thanks to the spatial structure, the fabric is pleasantly thick and unique. The typographic and geometric patterns allude to the aesthetics of the projects of the Polish artist group Blok. The fabrics are made from polyacrylonitrile yarn, which provides them with softness and elasticity. The quality of the materials also results from the use of subdued modernist colours, such as grey or light blue. All the patterns harmonize with each other and so create a consistent collection. The fabrics can be used individually; however, they complete each other perfectly when they are combined together. They are ideal for interior decoration and clothes production.
