At NeoCon 2021: Pallas Textiles Goes Tech

NeoCon is over but the buzz of new products remains, lingering in the air like an autumn sunset…

Speaking of mixed metaphors, Pallas Textiles’ Techne Collection is as futuristic as a seamstress’ handcrafted quilt.

Pallas Textiles point out that the above statement makes surprising sense, as the root, “tech” actually refers to art or craft: “this nuance is the inspiration behind Techne, which melds technology and craftsmanship in this non-woven collection.”

The idea is to unify technology with handcrafting, and the result is this collection of six stunning styles that look woven but are not, are, in fact, digitally printed.

The theme is reflected in the patterns themselves: from Flux (above) modeled on the flow of energy through our omnipresent electronics, to Arc (below), a graphical representation of synaptic connection, to Origin (above, on chair upholstery) a foundational solid evoking “the starting point of a technological system from which a palette can be built.”

Together, the six patterns of the Techne Collection are both an abstract and graphical representation of the synergy between craft and automation, between creative concept and the amazing technology we have at our disposal to bring ideas to fruition.
