Abstract [en]

The purpose of this thesis is to explore the possibilities to create freestanding functional textile object that involves the potential of traditional textile technique for creating three-dimensional textile structures. These three-dimensional textile structures are used to generate the style of freestanding functional textile object and to create a product for the public room. The subculture and techniques involved in Thai textile techniques are the inspirations throughout this project. For example, sitting on the floor is prominent in this subculture and is, therefore; an initiation of the furniture development in this project. Meanwhile, Scandinavian design also influences the aesthetic and finds out the simple solution with its simplicity and functionalism. Nature is also a powerful source of inspiration in creating these three-dimensional knitted textiles. These factors influence the method used to explore techniques, colours and style. Moreover, sociology is considered to guide the design process and to determine the style of freestanding textile object, for instance; the relationships among people. “Texniture” is a name given to the freestanding functional textile object and is a kind of the furniture created in this project. The result shows how three-dimensional textiles can be manipulated in space, and aims to give audiences a new understanding of textiles. Texniture 1
