Maarten and Guus made a special series of Avifauna birds, which will be shown at Spazio Rossana Orlandi, during the 2012 Salone del Mobile in Milan. The series contains 13 different birds varying from a swan and stork to a woodcock and a quail, all covered in Reticolo Ardesia fabric form Rubelli’s collection.
in their own words... “After having observed, analyzed and documented nature, we’ve stared with Avifauna to materialize nature as we see it. In every new project we learn more about the change of land, water and the flora and fauna that go with it. Being designers we see blossoming timber, bleeding textiles, moving garlands and a limitless offer of techniques in the ways nature constantly changes and adapts. We try to materialize our observations and bring it closer to the industry we work in. In Avifauna we molded on the conserved parts of the species to materialize their characteristics in textiles."
