We truly admire work of Nadine Goepfert, multidisciplinary designer, working within areas of interior, product, art and fashion. Her projects invites the viewer to look beyond what’s visible — offering a different perspective on artistic disciplines, seamlessly merging them in one coherent body of work.
Presented project, Manners, is a study on napery and the significance of table linen in social and historical context. It’s not only examination of manners. The collection attempts to question the meaning of routines, rituals, automatism, and rules related to everyday act — eating.
"The table cloth, formerly considered a sign of wealth, has become a common practical item. This not only implies a change of meaning, but also a change of materiality.Manners investigates this development through a collection of tablecloths, multifunctional napkins, tea towels and aprons. Made from linen, cotton, rubber and PVC the items aim to juxtapose and merge former and current aspects of domesticity. Whitework embroidery and macramee, techniques often discredited as housewife crafts, are translated into contemporary shapes and framed in a more useful than decorative context,” described the collection Nadine.
