BE­HIND THE MASK

Elle Decoration (South Africa) - - NEWS -

Graphic de­signer and Fabrica founder Kirsten Townsend has turned to the graphic vis­ual lan­guage of African masks for her lat­est project, Un­masked. Con­sist­ing of hand­wo­ven wool Un­masked Rugs and resin-cast Un­masked Casts that com­bine 2-D sur­face de­sign and 3-D forms, the de­signs are ‘a min­i­mal­ist reimag­i­na­tion of an an­cient art form with dis­tinct, ab­stract de­signs that fit seam­lessly into the mod­ern home, hon­our­ing Africa’s wide-reach­ing in­flu­ence,’ says Townsend. Only 15 of each rug and cast de­sign are avail­able and can be bought on­line at fabrica.co.za or via email at [email protected] fab­ri­c­as­tu­dio
