Elisa Strozyk is a true innovator. A young designer from Berlin, she has taken the steadfastly steady and solid material of wood and made things brimming with tactile movement and lightness.
Her pieces are sculptural and beautiful. The Accordion collection is a delight, but its her wooden textiles that leap out. As she says, we are used to wood as a ‘hard material’, but she has created things that can be ‘manipulated by touch’.
She uses the same triangular grid in her Miss Maple lamp, which has all the delicate appearance of paper. Her work is ingenious, interactive and just plain wonderful. We can’t wait to see more.
