De­signer Kirsten Townsend of Fab­rica re­cently re­leased “Un­masked”— a project in­spired by the vis­ual lan­guage of African masks. Kirsten, who trained as a graphic de­signer, has rein­ter­preted the an­cient art form with a min­i­mal­ist and graphic ap­proach. The project in­cludes two ranges: Un­masked Rugs and Un­masked Casts. The rugs are 100% hand-wo­ven wool and the casts, which bring the two-di­men­sional sur­face de­sign of the rugs into a three-di­men­sional form, are hand moulded and cast in resin. There are three de­signs of each and only 15 of each prod­uct is avail­able, mak­ing them cov­etable and col­lectable.
