But the Kindred wallcovering collection also has a deeper meaning: “My experience working with textiles and ceramics has always been multidimensional. I never think of the fabric as a flat surface and always bring three-dimensional elements to enhance the details. And it’s the same philosophy I use to design wallpaper or even work with clay. Also, I wanted the wall coverings to be tactile, so when you get close to the surface you feel connected, not only to the patterns but to the materials as well. “
