Intarsia is an extension of Elisa Strozyk's signature work, her Wooden Textile Series, comprising hybrid materials made of wood veneer and fabric. Small wooden tiles are hand positioned on a flexible base, combining the traditional technique of marquetry with innovative textile design. The results can transform from a flat surface to a sculptural 3D form. Intended for hanging as wall art, Intarsia is handmade in maple and poplar veneer on cotton fabric. Measuring 170 x 200 cm, this is an open edition design made to order, with unique variations that result from the process. Custom colors and patterns can be requested.
Based in Berlin, Strozyk studied Textile & Surface Design at KHB in Berlin and completed the MA course Future Textiles at Central Saint Martins in London. Her work blurs the boundaries between 2D and 3D, hard and soft, textiles and furniture. She regularly collaborates with different artists, designers, and companies. In 2010, she received the German Design Award from the German Design Council and the German Ministry of Economics. Her has been shown at Design Miami/ and Victoria & Albert Museum.
