Wood is not a material that immediately comes to mind when you hear the word "rug" or "bed spread" which makes German designer Elisa Strozyk's reinterpretation of the natural resource so triumphant. Using laser-cut wood triangles attached to fabric, Strozyk has created rugs, lamp shades and, yes, bed spreads out of incredibly thin wood veneers. The results are delicate and mold-able pieces that look like paper and act like fabric but remain wood at heart. Most of her designs are only in concept phase, but it's always exciting to see new explorations of the world's oldest materials.
Expect bags, curtains and more than a few designers to join Strozyk down this path.
