I’m a new big fan of the intricate laser-cut fabrics designed and produced by Elitis in France. Using ultra-modern technology, a full range of detailed graphic designs are cut into fabrics for wall hangings, window coverings and draperies. Pictured at top: Sharav (my favorite – circles!); below: Ange, with big butterflies and exotic flowers.
Created using a variety of materials from "man-made" leather to taffetas, the fabrics are laser-cut and applied to an almost-invisible black or silver tulle to maintain shape and structure when hanging. These could make a terrific alternative to standing room dividers, providing something a bit softer and more ephemeral. Or, a big swath hung in the right place becomes a stunning art installation!
Pictured above: Khamsin, their modern "vegetable" motif; Below: Bon Genie, inspired by kinetic art. Visit Elitis to check out their other laser-cut fabrics. Elitis also designs and produces other fabrics (including outdoor and technical fabrics), wall coverings and modern furniture.
