Feltology by Lorenzo Polo
Updated: Jan 27, 2020
Felt is a well known material and has been used in different ways, although its role has been mostly as a peripheral element in many design works. Feltology is a project that attempts to highlight the qualities of felt and to put it in foreground.
Through the use of resin as a gluing and hardening material, Polo's aim has been making this soft material a hard and sculptural one so that it could be easily modelled, cut and sculpted.
The result is a technique that can lead to different applications. The following lamps are representatives of layering technique of resin and felt, a unique method with a beautiful outcome.
