Something a bit different this week – LaceFence.
“LaceFence is a Dutch based company that designs & produces unique architectural fabric delivered globally. LaceFence has grown into a product which lives up to the highest standards for a variety of applications.
“LaceFence shows how something which was meant to be purely functional can also be decorative. Hostility versus kindness, industry versus craft.
“The architectural applications are limitless. Varying from (french) balconies, building facades, ceiling panels, bridge & staircase railings, room dividers, park & driveway fencing, gates & doors, logo’s & promotional banners or even just as a handmade artpiece on the wall.”
I’m a bit in love with this idea. Why should chain link fences be boring? If you’re going to have the same old same old then at least they can be yarnbombed, but LaceFence changes the game significantly with their concept.
I also like the fact that they’re honouring traditional lace with many of their designs. On their site you can see new and fresh ideas that cater to the commercial requirements of their customers, but a lot of the time it appears that they enjoy playing with patterns that are familiar and nostalgic.
I think it’s beautiful and one day when I get to do the Grand Designs thing and build Mr X Stitch Towers, I’m getting me some LaceFence!
