The proximity of water calms the senses, its sound and color induce a slightly meditative, relaxing state. Observations prove its ability to improve well-being and support mental health, while physical contact with it or immersion in it relaxes the muscles, which also affects the subconscious. This experience is precious in our modern life, where the senses are constantly overloaded.
Shape of water
This collection redefines our ancient relationship with water through the adaptive properties of the fabric. The beneficial effects of natural waters on the human body and psyche, like the constantly changing view of Lake Balaton, are filtered into colors, structures, and tactile textures.
For Krisztina, who competed as a synchronized swimmer for years and spent more time in the water than others probably do in a lifetime, this element is a homely, valued resource. By working with the collection pieces, she translates the positive energy associated with it into the language of fibers, considering the familiar and beloved Balaton as her main inspiration.
The hues and unique atmosphere of the largest lake of Central Europe, which change by the time of the day, are reflected in the colors and patterns of the textiles, offering links to the natural environment. The water tones and the characteristic “Balaton color” are complemented by the shades of sunsets, winter atmospheric phenomena, and the typical vegetation of the landscape.
In addition to the color therapy effect, soft wool and the spatial arrangement of the repetitive patterns also stimulate tactile perception. The deliberate choice of material provides a different temperature sensation depending on the weaving pattern and thickness. The plaids evoke the calm moments of water activities and the free flow of thoughts. They take us away from daily stress, tune us to recharge, and soothe the waves of our inner lake.
Just like water borrows the shape of things around it, the pieces of Shape of Water wrap their user gently with the richness of lights, currents, and color transitions dreamed into textiles.
