Surface Design Show 2024
Kaniez Abdi Stand 560
I have been a freelance textile consultant for the past 24 years, working in various creative areas; from designing and creating embroidery for film, TV, fashion, trend forecasting, and creating bespoke interior products.
My specialty and passion lie in creating cutting-edge textile surfaces that immediately transform any interior space. Highly experimental and accomplished in approach, I use a wide range of techniques including hand sewing, machine embroidery, beading, bonding, heating, dyeing, painting, and digital printing.
I create textiles to be more like couture - exquisitely constructed and one-off. My products are often made from unconventional materials and a plethora of construction methods which together create a luxurious, fashion-forward look and feel.
I produce innovative textile products that encompass Objects d'art, Lampshades, Lighting, Digital Prints, Glass, Furniture, Cushions, Wall coverings, and Soft Furnishings.
At the Surface Design Show 2024, I will be showing a selection of products. Work included in the showcase will be art, furniture, wall coverings, and fabrics.
I will be launching a new collection of digitally printed wall coverings and fabrics. The inspiration for this collection comes from the details and textures of my artwork itself. The art pieces have been photographed and then digitally manipulated, to create a series of exquisite wallpapers and fabrics which have a three-dimensional effect. These can be enjoyed in a range of hospitality, retail, and residential settings, adding interest to a feature wall, or to breathe instant luxury and subtle texture into a tired space.
