Elisa Strozyk‘s Wooden Textiles are a manifestation of how waste can be the source of a new process of creativity and innovation. German based designer Elisa Strozyk started experimenting with off-cuts of wood veneer from a workshop that was closing. Most often we use textiles to skin surfaces. Strozyk’s work considers these while adding a new dimension and surprise. The wooden textile intends to look at the new ways wood can be manipulated from its hard physical property to a fluid form when combined with fabric. Providing flexibility to wood allows us to connect with it in new ways. Utilizing wood veneers once considered waste and re-purposing them through hand and laser cut isosceles, she is able to leverage the hard properties of wood and give them a fluid framework to create an innovative textile. Her process gives the textile strength and flexibility.
