This print illustrates an intricate pattern inspired by my cultural heritage and my consistently growing love for lace. I was keen to explore the juxtaposition between soft and delicate nature of lace, and hard and utilitarian objects I found in my “Sushi Box” such as a watch mechanism, metal brush, wire, bolts, screws, keys etc.
Titled “metalace”, this print is also known as the “love child of metalab and yellowtrace”.
I was invited to participate in Designer Sushi project, which was a collaboration between 'Metalab and 'mmmh!' (Germany) showcasing works developed by creative’s across a range of fields, including architects, designers, writers, bloggers and chefs.
Each creative was provided a ‘sushi box’ composed of bits and bites found in everyday life. These objects, removed from their familiar environment, became the starting point for the design process.
The outcome was exhibited at Metalab during the Sydney Design Festival 2010.
