Concept

Blur is a study of architectural invisibility. Through the physical suggestion of disappearance the designer questions the relationship between form and background. A distortion in density makes it difficult to understand the true size of the piece, and this invisibility is made possible through the use of a new fabric weaving technique. The project is an excuse to create a new jacquard fabric which when
applied to a three dimensional form, makes it difficult to really understand space, size and volume.
