Sarah Roseman is a Canadian designer based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands and educated at Design Academy Eindhoven. She is passionate about creating a more beautiful world through materiality and works on the boundary of textile and object. Through her playful and imaginative pieces, she aims to evoke a sense of joy. Her works carry unique personality and appear to come alive in a world of their own. Sarah works as a designer and material researcher and draws on her archives of new and reclaimed materials to lead the creation of new work.
The reef shelf series combines an innovative exploration of textile materiality with a refreshing colour scheme and warm tactility. The unique knitting and casting process brings the pieces to life, evocative of coral reefs and underwater life. Due to the movement of the textile during the casting process, each shelf flows in a unique way. The flocked nylon coating provides acoustic dampening properties, allowing the shelves to function as acoustic panels. The series exists in the space between creature and object, similar to how sea corals and anemones occupy the mystical space between plant and animal. With their flocked surface finish and linear form language, Sarah combines the aesthetics of digital texturing with handmade craft
