Kinooni Dialogues is a collection of finely handcrafted luxury carpets, bridging the historical symbols of Swahili culture with the remarkably refined craftsmanship of Chinese weaving with both traditional techniques and new technologies. Studio Marcel van Doorn created an edition of exquisitely constructed pieces with a very modern, contemporary feel. (collection text by Fiona Makkink)
For this project I worked for Studio Marcel van Doorn and took care of the (digital) textile design and technical product-sheets of the carpets and tapestries. This included selecting, determining and digitally composing and drawing the different tufting and knitting techniques, 3D-reliefs in different heights, material effects, embellishments and colour implementations.
Kinooni Dialogues is a project conceived and designed by Studio Marcel van Doorn commissioned by FULI Carpet
