Abstract [en]

This licentiate thesis focuses on surface patterns, spatiality, and pattern relations in textile design, and aims to explore surface patterns as spatial definers and what they mean in the context of surface patterns. A secondary focus relates to applying conceptual spatial determinations as alternative design variables in design processes, and exploring how these could be used to define and analyse pattern relations.

Through a series of exploratory design experiments that used printed and projected surface patterns in a three-dimensional setting, which were documented using photographs and film, the notion of pattern relations, wherein scale was used as a design variable, was explored. The outcome of the experiments showed the expressional possibilities that surface patterns may provide in a defined space, and how these are connected to pattern relations. In order to encourage an accompanying discussion regarding alternative methods of analysing surface patterns, the construction of a theoretical model was initiated. Workshops with design students were used as another practical method in this work.

The results showed that there is great potential in using conceptual spatial determinations to define pattern relations by viewing surface patterns as spatial definers, rather than taking a traditional perspective on their functions. Another outcome is the theoretical model, which proposes a specific approach to pattern relations.

This research demonstrates how conceptual spatial determinations can benefit the textile design process, as well as design teaching, which could in turn provide the field with new expressions that may lead to a change in or fruitful addition to the practice.

Abstract [en]

This PhD project investigates the relationships between textile patterns, scale and spatial contexts from the perspective of textile design. Against this background, the purpose is to answer the research questions “How can the designer get a better understanding of scale and size in designing textile patterns and what kind of functions and characteristics do different patterns have in spatial contexts?”. It is expected that this practical and methodical approach can offer insights of scale and size issues in designing textile patterns, and may be useful especially for the textile design community.

Abstract [en]

This PhD project investigates the relationships between textile patterns, scale and spatial contexts from the perspective of textile design. In order to examine this area, a physical model in scale 1:10 was built to create a scenario for the design example. The design decisions were made to understand and to analyze what´s happening concerning scale and pattern. The patterns are tried methodically in six different scales and with the four most common repeat methods. This practical and methodical design example aims to share a systematic approach for a better understanding of scale and size in designing textile patterns and to find functions and characteristics among different patterns in spatial contexts.
