In complement to her past couture collaborations with Maharam, Hella Jongerius is now designing true performance textiles, making her work accessible to a broad audience, while still preserving her unique approach to color, material, and narrative. With shifting motifs, Confetti and Trees bring movement to the textile surface.

Through color blocking and scattered placement, Confetti creates the illusion of spheres in motion foregrounded on a solid matte surface. Jongerius’s dynamic material and color pairings are evident in both Confetti and Trees. The textiles combine metallic nylon yarn with wool, which adds an atmospheric quality through natural color variation, creating depth and textural contrast to great effect.
