lynn tandler


On a quest to redefine conventional ideas about textiles, Tandler was inspired by blacksmith techniques to surprisingly transform alloys such as copper and tinned copper

into a malleable draping cloth suitable for upholstery and even fashion.   The textile’s structure is derived from cotton threads and a specially-developed weaving technique to support its metallic wires.
