Project overview

Mieke van den Hout from Studio Mieke Lucia used the aesthetic and functional values of Colback as starting point for the project. Mieke defined the open structure and light weight of the Colback material best for creating acoustic panels. The panels have a flowing cover which is filled with Colback snippets. These snippets are contributing to the absorbing function of the acoustic panel.

Mieke fused Colback with a knitted scuba fabric which emphasizes aesthetics of the nonwoven material. The combination of the two materials reinforces the strength of the overall product. Mieke van den Hout has a passion for experimenting with colours, pigments and ways of dyeing in her designs. In course of the in4nite project Mieke used the Colback material as basis for various colour experiments.

I see beauty in the Colback® material which I want to make visible and revalue by creating objects that lighten up our surroundings.

This translucent qualities of the material and the revolving process got her thinking of ghosts.
