My first Vallila

Tiira – Vallila Interior

My first textile project using a Vallila Interior product came by chance.

I was new in a local business group of a global network, and in our local group we had arranged a lottery between our guests. From my side the prize was a noise-dampening acoustic wall element, with the textile being the free choice of the receiver.

The receiver chose the textile theme called ‘Tiira’. The name of the black-stripe-headed seagull, in Finnish.

The first photo is of the back side. Me, just having fun, asking in social media wether people recognize the textile theme.

The challenge in making this panel was fitting the main action of the birds inside the measurement of the panel. Which is 100x60x3 cm. I am pleased with the end result. Both birds heads are seen, as well as the full wing of one bird. Also, the ‘center of gravity’, the action, is in the center.

The next project, if focusing on the same theme, I will most likely mount in a portrait orientation. Thus, more of the wings in the vertical line will be seen. As well as the birds tails.

A pleased receiver, just in time for the Christmas holidays 2017.

About the Author.

Martin R.C. Andersson started out as a mechanical engineer, slowly developing a soft spot for project management in which he worked 10 years.
Although having resigned from a corporate career within project management, the soft spot he keeps alive through a keen interest in room environment treatment. By control of sound and light, looking to tweak for that noise-free listening… which should be a norm.
Values silence, and now and then solitude.
Thinks Mindfulness is a ‘state of being’ when work really gets done.
When thoughts flow – without disruption – to reach either a creative state or finish what’s at hand.

When the outside world is tuned out, performance is tuned in.
Feels best when Minimalism, Functionalism and Art come together, crossing paths.
