TAPED table linen

Alissia Melka-Teichroew created the Taped series by making patterns with masking tape. She superimposed the shape of tape pieces with their "jagged, imprecise" edges over the traditional checked patterns of woven damask. The result is at once elegant and edgy.

Design philosophy

Invisible Lines Made Visible

Melka-Teichroew sees Taped as a meditation on borders. As she says, "We draw lines and perceive them as boundaries even though there is nothing physically stopping us from crossing them."

Our Legacy

Functionals is located near the Dutch city of Tilburg, once famed for its many textile factories. It’s only fitting that we developed Taped at the Textiel Lab, a textile think tank for artists and designers located in one of Tilburg’s old factories.
