"The idea of creating objects out of fabric covers, shows, what is possible if you combine handcrafts with new technology. The subject of the project was to create something new, using the power of the element fire as a designer – with all its destroying but also creative strength. The experiments aimed at applying fireproof textiles to other areas of use. When manufacturing objects made of textiles, you need to face constant changes. Every object is a unique copy. Even if the pieces are sewed accurately, they will turn out differently, due to temperature and size."
German-born Fabio Vogel creates mouth-blown glass objects and vases from his Hannover studio. Vogel sees the border between art and design as porous, to which the act of making is central. Studio Vogel do not believe in fixed methodologies, arguing that experimenting and playing with the materials used is key to creating.
