Metal lace fence (3 panels): bobbin lace technique using galvanised steel wire; fabricated in Bangalore, India
‘Lace Fence combines the ancient craft of lace-making with the industrial chain-link fence. Lace Fence shows how something which was meant to be purely functional can also be decorative. Hostility versus kindness, industry versus craft.
Our design studio is based in the Netherlands, the production unit is based in Bangalore, India. We value a socially responsible and sustainable way of producing. With our team of lacers these aspects are as important to us as being able to create new products.
Industrial production is a big source of inspiration. Our projects often combine the sensitive and the small with the powerful, large and industrial. The Lace Fence project translates that line of thinking. Fencing is a sign of how we modified and cultivated our environment. Like brambles, fences are rising rampantly around us. What would happen if a patch of embroidered wire would meet with and continue as an industrial fence?’
