MEET THE MAKER
Studio Imke van Boekhold makes textile and color designs and works both autonomously and commissioned. She describes her work as poetic and conceptual, with her delicate handwriting as the connecting factor. ‘Because of the fleeting nature of life, it is a challenge to slow down and to experience the beauty of everyday life with attention,’ says Imke. With her work she wants to challenge people to become aware of the environment in which they move naturally. This attention, together with a great love for working with color and material, forms the foundation of her work. She works thoughtfully, inquisitively and intuitively and leaves room in the design process for chance and surprises by letting go of control for a while.
