RESEARCH in material, colour and shape 
playing with different materials and searching for colour- and shape combinations sometimes leads to new ideas for fashion, product or textile design.

Atelier Pfister News Paper, portrait, my work

The ATELIER PFISTER Newspaper introducing my work: ....









Für die zweite Kollektion von Atelier Pfister habe ich eine Reihe weiterer Gestalter eingeladen. Dazu gehören die Textildesignerin Claudia Caviezel, die besonders mit ihrer Farbigkeit, mit ihren collagenartigen Mustern für Überraschungen sorgt. Sie sprudelt vor Energie und finden in vielen Ländern neue Ideen. Kein Wunder, dass ihre Stoffe ausseheh, wie wenn man die ganze Welt durch ein Kaleidoskop sehen würde. Und für Atelier Pfister wagt sie sich zum ersten Mal an einen Möbelentwurf, ein Sofa. ......

In October 2010 I will start giving lectures and workshops

in the department TEXTILE DESIGN,
where I graduated 8 years ago.

I am very much looking forward to that!


tape it     selection of diploma textile design, 2002 

Domino effects or chain reactions have been the method to create an inspiring collection, a fund of ideas with drafts, cloths, pictures, clothes, accessories and interiors presented in their various stages of development.
The adhesive tape marks my diploma collection.

I developed a new technique to make clothes seamless and reversible by using several different adhesive textile tapes.


Plissée Object used as scarf or photo-montage for fashion ideas: accessory 40 x 60 cm silkscreen on cotton, pleated with painter's masking tape


Part of the diploma collection were also paintings: acrylic- and spray-paint on wood, each 25 x 47 cm


Waistcoat Jacket Matador embroidery on wool ground fabric stuck together with adhesive textile tape in different colours / reversible wearable --/*/--Skirt and Lace-ups Ragusas textile tape make the pleats of the skirt, which all its painted yellow with acrylic paint, which gives it a stiff touch. The Lace-ups are put together with textile adhesive tape and green leather bands, the bottom are several layers of tape stuck together. --/*/-- Skirt Wendelin Silkscreen on neoprene stuck together with tape / reversible wearable


Going into SPACE / pumpkin tendrils

Skirt / cape ø 130 cm - Silkscreen print and spray-paint on former circular tablecloth, a green leather cord is holding the fabric on the hips. The same displayed onto the wall of a living room.



Blinds / tape it 2002 and Lucky Loft Gallery Hamburg 2006

Beige painter's masking tape stuck directly on the window. The several layers change the aspect and the effect of the pattern according to the changing of the light situation outside and inside the room. In sunshine, the shadow is displayed all over the room and creates a nice atmosphere.

I like it, because everybody can do it, it is cheap and effective! I want to animate people to improvise in their everyday environment, and be creative themselves, .... this is one way.

My idea to create patterns with simple painters masking tape on the windows was published in the first edition of 'Patterns in Design, Art and Architecture'.

(for more see link > press)


The same idea used with coloured paper- and textile tapes. Stuck together on both sides, used as a room divider or curtain, also changing its colour and pattern according to the light conditions.


Pages out of my sketch- and scrapbook during that time:

and that's the same, burned into a paper:

The conclusion: Too much light, and the camera not totally closed. ... Let's try again!



One week workshop with Jane ni Dhulchaointigh 

Playing with colors and shapes as a research on materials and new combinations for packaging, to be continued! 


case study 1

I took apart a carry on luggage.... amazing, how many components are in one suitcase, that only costs 12 €!


Interim Show July 2009

Presentation of the "masterpieces" done so far, and the idea for the THESIS project. Limited space and also the yearly topic "IN TRANSIT" are the reason, why I presented my work on a TOPMANTA.


Workshop with MISSONI 

MISSONI in Madrid, MISSONI in the Prado-Museum, MISSONI and Art…

It is an experiment to play with the strong relationship of  MISSONI and the Art-world. I see it as a fusion of color and shape, which changes the message of the original paintings or drawings sometimes ironically, sometimes artistically.

  •            A series of pictures for postcards, a campaign
  •            Or just to be showed and framed as they are
