Fiberspace is a gallery showcasing unique pieces and limited editions of fabulous fiber art and design.
Flax light is designed by the Dutch designer Christien Meindertsma, who explores the life of products and raw materials. With her designs, Christien aims to regain understanding of processes that have become so distant in industrialisation.
With the Flax project, Christien collaborated with farmer Gert Jan van Dongen, using his entire harvest of 10,000 kilos of flax fibers from his farm in the Flevopolder in 2010 to develop a series of products from this locally produced flax. Working from the seed to the final product. One of these products is the Flax light, which was made in collaboration with traditional ropemaker Touwslagerij Steenbergen and designed for Thomas Eyck.
