Meet Lea Kargaard. She’s a student at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in the Institute of Architecture and Design. Lea is in the Master program specializing in textile design, where she works with the development of textiles and design concepts for interiors, fashion and architecture.
Lea invites us into the studio and shares her creative process with us.
At the moment, I am in the middle of a small process, where I work and experiment with the 3-D shapes and designs in textile materials which are suitable for shielding or similar functions either inside or in the outdoors.
It is somewhat of a challenge, and I have no idea right now what I am really doing. But the good thing about this small process is that you just have to throw yourself into it and see what comes out of it.
I certainly need to practice not thinking too much about what it is I am doing. And just do something instead. This usualy results in some very interesting studies, which you can use later in the design process.
Here are some various work images and inspiration material from my process. The focus is on membrane constructions, colors, transparent materials, as well as shadows and patterns used in architecture. It is all based on the textile.
