Design Academy Eindhoven graduate Anna Badur is an independent Designer based in Berlin. Having studied Contextual Design she has created several industrial design projects that reflect her style, her ideas and her view on design. Her ability to create art and design from everyday simple materials makes her work unique and lets us see design from a new angle in an un-expecting way. All her projects so far belong to her master thesis, which was generally about the idea of using natural influences in design processes.
Her latest project „Drawn by Nature“, awarded with the iF concept design award 2013, is where natural forces meet because the environment in which it exists shapes everything in the natural world. Since natural forces and weather conditions form Landscapes, and organisms adapt to their natural habitats, she explored the northwestern Germany, her home turf. There, water and wind have a dominant effect both on the landscape and on the human condition. It has a melancholic beauty, which offers room for poetry and creation.
These most essential elements oft he region became Anna’s media and is a study of its aesthetic potential.
Her 100% cotton textiles (washable up to 40°C) are made of blue pigments that were blown over the wet fabric, by the wind making it result into unique patterns and an end result is directly determined by the process.
She exhibited during last Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven a collection of all kind of experiments to give the viewer an inside look into the processes.
“I’m interested in how design can take advantage of integrating natural forces in the process of creation”.
