Puff & Flock – Melissa French at Designersblock London 2010

August 23, 2010

The Urban Upholstery concept explored her dream of covering the entire city with her bold patterns: combining floral ornament and geometry. Beyond just a great surface pattern, this time-based work uses various metals in her weaves to enable them to endure time and weather whist evolving gorgeously through natural rusting or oxidising. Inspired by graffiti, urban guerrilla movements and traditional interior textiles and design, she wants to bring an element of beauty, pattern, design and ultimately surprise to the urban landscape.
