Mieke van den Hout from Growing Textiles recognized the aesthetic and functional values of Colback to create acoustic panels. The panels have a flowing cover which is filled with Colback snippets. Mieke van den Hout is passionate about colours, pigments and ways of dyeing in her designs. In the course of the in4nite project Mieke used the Colback material as basis for various colour experiments.

Klaas Kuiken designed a collection of lamp shades inspired by the translucent qualities of Colback. The designs play with the aesthetics qualities of the Colback and combine them with the technical character. The series of shades are inspired by natural light sources like the moon and the sun.

Joris de Groot

For the project Low & Bonar in4nite Studio Joris de Groot was inspired by the production processes of air filters, a product partly made of Colback. Joris collaborated with a factory with a specialization in laminating textiles and a factory specialized in pleating, two processes that are important in the production of filters. In search for the right strength, visual effect and tactility Joris combined different materials with Colback and plays with various pleating patterns. The collection created by Studio Joris de Groot offers a new application possibility for Colback in combination with different materials, using existing industrial techniques in a new way.

Kraft Architecten

KRAFT architecten have designed a museum-like pavilion setting for the Dutch Design Week, where the product designs resulting from the Low & Bonar in4nite project are displayed. The composition of the pavilion is designed to create a unique visitor experience.

Erik Stehmann turned the 2 dimensional Colback into a 3D product by developing a way to crease the material with a CNC machine. After experimenting with different folding patterns, a pattern with rounded structure was designed that folds into a strong and lightweight tube, forming the Rilly Nice lamp series.

Robbin Baas used the Centre Pompidou in Paris as inspiration for his design of a vertical garden. This means the components used for the construction of the vertical garden are visualized. Robbin folded layers of Colback and combined them by weaving the Colback pockets together with water tubes. The planted pockets create the vertical garden. The installation is not only a garden it also improves the air quality and adds a piece of nature in your home.
