Abstract [en]

This degree work places itself in the field of textile design, more specific surface pattern design, interaction and textile objects. The aim of this work is to experiment with playfulness within textile design, developed through surface structures, form and changeable patterns. In order to create interaction between the pieces and the observer, where the textile objects within the pieces can be moved around to build or disassemble a pattern. The methods of design and construction were transfer printing, after treatments, pattern construction and sewing. Foam was used as a filling material to create volume and to keep a suitable soft textile feel in each piece. After treatments such as foil and flock print were used in order to create another level of interaction within the surface’s tactility. The result of this project is three different textile objects printed with surface patterns that are interchangeable, interactive and that can be used in a playful context. ‘PUZZLED’ engages the participant to play and experience amusement. These works have the potential to be developed further into interior design and in learning contexts for children.
