Dutch designer, Petra Vonk (b.1966), launched her Amsterdam design studio in 1990 after graduating from the Eindhoven Design Academy.
Collaborating closely with architects and interior designers has resulted in innovative textiles and their uses.
Playing with the characteristics that are bound within specific materials and techniques, Petra creates often new and unexpected concepts and applications. Through the use of repetition in abstract pattern designs, her designs experiment with transparency, while contrasting materials and progressive techniques arouse curiosity. Design objects display expressive visual and tactile qualities with an emphasis in functionality, be it to enhance the acoustic properties of a space or offer intimacy to an interior by means of impenetrable graphic patterns.
Her work has been exhibited at the Tilburg Textile Museum, Museum Onze Lieve Heer op Solder in Amsterdam and at the Museum Arnhem. She has been commissioned by private clients and museums including Rijksmuseum, ZuiderZeeMuseum and the Tilburg Textile Museum. She is guest lecturer in experimental textiles and knits design at Design Academy Eindhoven and at Artez Fashion Masters.
