Altering the perception of woven textiles, Dutch artist Fransje Gimbrere creates 3D sculptures using natural and recycled fibres. Each experimental structure is handmade, thread by thread, on a custom-built loom before it’s sealed with bio-resin.

In Fransje’s Special Acoustic Edition series, the black and white frameworks are treated with an eco-friendly material that absorbs sound and improves acoustics.

These skeleton-like forms may appear fragile, but their structures are solid and robust. By shining a light on the versatility of fabric, Fransje demonstrates the possibility and potential within her humble material.
