A British Design Story at La Fabrika
On the occasion of Design September 2011, La Fabrika invited London crafts queen Donna Wilson to create an installation around her designs, together with British manufacturers Ercol and SCP. The result? Next to the lovely window display you have the scoop of four one off wrapped Ercol pieces!
Using a wrapping technique, Donna created pieces using various shades of yarn graduating through colour pallets. An effect which works well with the contrast between the pale natural wood and the tactile wool. In other words you have the softness of the wool and the references to basket weaving which are part of Ercol's originals range.
Next to these four one off's, you will discover the magician with wool through her colourful knitted creatures, quirky home wares and striking upholstered furniture. The I Love Belgium team is already thinking of doing some Christmas shopping! Who knows, maybe we'll fall in love and go home with an one-off...
