Fascination is a central element to Jule Cats’ designs, stimulating interaction between the object and the user. With her current handmade collections, she creates a sense of mystery by combining contrasting materials into one object.
The origin of her series lies within the housing system of Dutch cities. Having lived in houses that were on the list to be demolished, Jule Cats experienced the grief that comes with being forced to leave your home.
With these handmade series she shows how beautiful the waste product still is – almost as beautiful as the memories attached to it. By combining concrete remains with polyester, she developed multiple designs showing the beauty and emotional value of a waste product.
