There is nothing I love more then when one of my preconceived ideas gets shattered. That happen when I attended NeoCon East (trade show for commercial interiors), where Susanne Tick was giving a talk. She is well known for her excellence in product design and brand strategy for commercial products, so I was expecting a stale sales pitch type of a talk. It was far from it. Tick is part mad scientist part artist. I say scientist, because she has to experiment with fibers to get the right strength, color, and texture. the artist part is obvious in the end product. I have to admit though, that even though she has won awards for her commercial textiles, it was her personal art pieces that really spoke to me. Below are some of these artistic textiles from susannetick.com.
