Know-how / Specialty
The expertise of Cecile Feilchenfeldt lies primarily in combining traditional knit techniques with new fibres to create unexpected and sometimes even playful effects. She enjoys juxtaposing colours. With a background in costume and set designing – most notably at the Comedie Francaise in Paris and the Zurich Opera – her expressivity is funnelled through a heightened attention to volume proportions, and to the motion created by fabric. Experimentation is the basis of creativity in her workshop. Above all she believes in letting the yarn express itself, and her work then feeds on shifts and variations brought about by analysis and chance observations.
