Studio Bertjan Pot's Masks

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 21, 2014
Dutch designer Bertjan Pot's masks were the product of a failed material experiment. "I wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together I could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy. When I was about to give up on the carpet, Vladi came up with the idea of ​​shaping the rope into masks. The possibilities are endless, I’m meeting new faces every day."

The possibilities are endless, I’m meeting new faces every day."
