t.e. 1821.41 flax chair

After Label/Breed connected Christien Meindertsma with Enkev, a company specializing in natural fibers, they concluded that a composite of flax and PLA — or polylactic acid, a bioplastic — would be an ideal sustainable construction material. She designed the chair to be made from one sheet of composite measuring roughly 2 feet by 3 feet, with very little waste. The initial run will use straw-colored natural flax. Big winner at  the Dutch Design Award 2016 & New Material Award 2016 and purchased by Vitra Design Museum 2016.

t.e. 210Christien Meindertsma designed a permanent installation of linen pigeons for Texture, the museum of  flax in Kortrijk, Belgium. The installation is about the homing pigeons used for espionage during the First World War, some of which were captured and held in the building that is now the museum. Each pigeon is  filled with  flax seeds and covered in various kinds of natural Belgian linen.

One of the first prototypes of the pigeon was made in a blue chambray-like textile, and for some time Christien wished to make the pigeons in different shades but she never really found a textile that worked.

When she received the colour samples of Kvadrat Canvas 2 and made a test bird, the pattern worked very well with the woolen textile. Because the filling is just linseed, the shape comes entirely from the textile’s sturdiness and slight stretch. For Pigeon Service, birds are made in all the available shades of Kvadrat Canvas to create a three-dimensional colour card: small objects that individually demonstrate the quality of the textile and together show the whole range. There are enough birds in Pigeon Service that some can also wander off and sit in other places...
