ONE WEEK ABOUT Textile Design by curator Eugène van Veldhoven
Henia Eizenberg was born in Israel in 1949. She studied Textile Design at the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague, the Netherlands and graduated in 1981. Since then she lives and works in the Netherlands.
Eizenberg developes designs for the textile industry and works on projects in cooperation with architects for whom she designs unique pieces.
Movement, play of light and color, and the quality of materials are important elements in her work. She is looking for new tactile qualities through unexpected combinations of materials, structures, forms and colors. At the same time she is searching for ways to integrate her work with the requirements and characteristics of a specific space or an industrial product.
She is inspired by moving between mass production and unica. Her curriculum reads like a constant alternation of industrial design, interior architecture and art.
