CASALIS PRESENTS ARCHITEXTILES in Collaboration with Aleksandra Gaca
Aleksandra Gaca is specialised in developing exclusive textile design on a contract-basis, in co-operation with both architects and interior architects. In addition, the studio contributes to commercial collections: curtain and furniture coverings, rugs and home accessories. Recent projects include design exclusive bedspreads for luxury hotels. For Belgian company Casalis she designed the collection poufs and plaids: Slumber and from Architextiles collection, fabric Cello. Own Label collections include collection Architextiles.
Architextiles 3D Acoustic Textiles is a series of sound absorbing textiles with a woven 3D structure. Due to their ribbed texture, these fabrics absorb sound waves much better than flat textiles. Thus contributing to a more muted environment. These textile panels combine two features: noise reduction and decoration. The undulating surface creates a play of light and shadow. This conceptual approach lies at the intersection of art, design and architecture. As a result, this functionally versatile collection can be widely applied: from high end private interiors via interior designers through to large scale architecture.
These textile panels are customisable in shape and size and have been installed in many architectural projects worldwide including the Amazon headquarters of Milan and Paris, Liberty fashion store in London, the offices of American Express in Hong Kong, and Schiphol airport in the Netherlands, to name a few. Developed through an innovative combination of both craft and high-tech elements these 3D woven textile panels have been recognized with numerous international awards.
