Open Closed


In this project I wanted to create a screendoor that would enhance the light coming through it from outside. I wanted it to be less about the screen, and more about the fabric. Taking the colors of the sky as an inspiration Open Closed was created.

Below: A collection of images I found showing screendoors that are all about the decoration of the frame.


Textile Samples I made trying to create more feeling in the otherwise "cold" fabric of the screendoor.
