Dutch designer Bertjan Pot gained a lot of exposure through these mask experiments, and rightly so. I personally have a bit of an obsession with masks as well, and was delighted to discover this series of extravagant, weird and truly striking experiments.
“Although seemingly these masks tell stories, this again started out as a material experiment. I wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together I could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy. When I was about to give up on the carpet, Vladi came up with the idea of shaping the rope into masks. The possibilities are endless, I’m meeting new faces every day.”
