Architextiles Acoustic textiles by Aleksandra Gaca

Home > Winners > #65603


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Architextiles

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Acoustic textiles

INSPIRATION:
Weaving is an ancient technology, I like to honour the emotional, deeply human quality of woven textiles while constantly pushing the boundaries of the industry. Every step I take inspires me to go further. My innovations focus on creating improved structures with better acoustic and insulating effects, using more sustainable materials and designing fresh pattern and colour combinations.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Architextiles is a series of sound absorbing textiles with a woven 3D structure. Due to their ribbed texture, these fabrics absorb sound waves much better than flat textiles. Thus contributing to a more muted environment. These textile panels combine two features: noise reduction and decoration. The undulating surface creates a play of light and shadow. This conceptual approach lies at the intersection of art, design and architecture.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The acoustic collection Architextiles was inspired by tapestry and aimed to add architectonic quality to textiles, while bringing tactile softness and decorativeness to contemporary architecture with its clean minimal lines. Architextiles are currently available in several patterns and customizable colours and compositions.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Designed in the Netherlands by Aleksandra Gaca, Casalis Architextiles are available since 2011. The collection is regularly developed, with new patterns, materials and textile variations for an increasing range of applications in interiors and architecture

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
the Architextiles collection was developed through an innovative combination of both craft and high tech elements, in a seamless process to create the panels. The textile panels, produced using sustainable materials. There are three variations of Casalis Architestiles: Cello, Slumber and ONDO. Cello are woven in a mixture of 30% merino wool, 29% virgin wool, 24% polyester, 16% cotton and 1% elastane. Architextiles Slumber are woven in a mixture of 31% merino wool, 22% PA, 15% cotton, 13% kid mohair and 1% elastane. Architextiles ONDO are woven in Woven in a mixture of 0.6% elasthane and 99.4% Trevira CS polyester.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The fabric has a width unstretched of 105 cm and a width stretched of 115 cm approximately. The maximum weaving length is about 25 linear meter

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Textile designer Aleksandra Gaca has always been fascinated by weaving technique and three-dimensional constructions. Experiments with self-made weaves and unusual materials have generated innovative fabric structures. Through this unique combination of weave and material she strives to achieve an as yet undiscovered added value. Architextile is the next step in searching for three dimensional weave structures. Her research into the technical possibilities and applications resulted surprising added value: noise reduction. Thanks to the ribbed textures, these fabrics absorb sound waves more efficiently than flat textiles and thereby contribute to a more muted environment.
