Our fabrics play one of the main roles in an interactive architecture project in Plac Wolności (Freedom Square), which once again has become a hot spot of the Malta Festival in Poznań (June 16-25, 2017).
The beating heart of the festival, the Malta Generator in Plac Wolności, was designed by Jola Starzak and David Strębicki form Starzak Strebicki Atelier. The designers used 370 meters of fine Dekoma Organza and Pat fabrics for the installation, creating zones for relaxation, discussion and experiencing art. The labyrinth of fabrics is an example of an unconventional use of textiles in public space architecture.
The installation constitutes a reference to this year’s motto of the festival and symbolically demonstrates that boundaries are a matter of social consent and that they can be easily overcome. Thus, Plac Wolności has been turned into a user-friendly meeting place. Fabrics are also an important element of the ‘Children are free to...’ and workshop zones. As a partner of the Festival, we participated in the creation of the festival gadgets: backpacks and bumbags made of leatherette in the shades of Silver and Graphite.
