Marieke van Heck, designer. For her work she combines traditional techniques with contemporary design. In this process, graphic, textile and product design merge into one another, creating a surprising and original image.
One space is increasingly used for different purposes.
To increase the use of space, I developed a more than four meter long rug, together with the Textiellab. This textile object can be used as a connector between the different surfaces in a room - wall, floor, furniture and ceiling.
Various weaving techniques were combined in the one work. As a result a dialogue takes place between the surfaces, in the textile itself as well as in its use in a room.
I have a workspace at home, in the center of Haarlem, which I share with a landscape architect. It’s here that I conceive and work out my projects. Although my desk and knitting machine are in this room, I also use other rooms in the house. For photo shoots, for example, the living room is converted into a studio.
To complete my projects I work together with others throughout the Netherlands. These collaborations expand my workplace. The interaction of an intimate and external workplace influences my work process positively.
My workspace at home is an intimate place where I can work out my ideas in peace.
In collaborating with others externally, I find specialized knowledge and resources. This creates objects that are refined in both design and in technology.
