Draped Flowers, Paper Thread Curtain to Hold Fresh Flowers by UMÉ Studio

$3,800per item

About

An ever-changing living vertical divider, the draped flowers curtain contains over 100 pockets where fresh flowers can be placed, transforming the space it inhabits by offering a landscape of seasonality and personal contexts. The limited run of 30 curtains are knit from a durable thread spun from Washi - a paper made of Manilla jute. As nature’s own room divider, the flora within the curtain is the owner’s choosing, free to design a floral tableau whose appearance and scent are ever changing and in sync with the seasons. Each curtain is produced in a series of small factories in Japan who use careful hand and machine processes to ensure the utmost quality and strength. The paper thread from which it’s made of is free of chemicals, producing a textile that is strong and washable, while being entirely organic. The finished pieces blur the line between still and living objects, while capturing the natural instincts for growth in the materials, the maker and the viewer. Measure: 10'6" x 10'6" panel Manilla jute washi paper / Washi paper spun into yarn / Knitted textile / Made in Japan Designed by Akane Moriyama.

About the Maker

UMÉ Studio

AN ATTITUDE TOWARDS CRAFT UMÉ Studio is a design practice where traditional craft meets contemporary tastes in delicate yet purposeful objects for everyday living. Founded by Victor Lefebvre and Mei-Lan Tan, their studio is the final stop in their design process journey. They begin with months-long travels to artisan workshops in many corners of the globe to render century-old skills and techniques, collaborating with a network of artisans and designers dedicated to their craft. Keeping these traditions alive is essential to UMÉ—so is updating their forms and bringing these timeless techniques into the now to achieve authentic, distinctive designs. BEAUTY, FUNCTION, TECHNIQUE Victor and Mei-Lan formed UMÉ Studio after years of working together in architectural firms and a shared design ethos where technique leads to design, rather than design informing technique, as is the norm. GLOBAL VS LOCAL Victor and Mei-Lan so far have forged cultural connections and learned techniques in the USA, France, Japan, and Switzerland, and continue to deepen their ties to these countries as well as other locales in the world. ather than a singular brand, UMÉ Studio is a group of individuals pursuing their identity through craft around the world. The practice is at once global and local, with a focus on designing objects for the home that are for the everyday, meant to engage and incite curiosity, and connect people, their cultures and their histories.
