  • Samira Boon

Lecture by Samira Boon (Studio Samira Boon) as part of the MaterialDistrict Utrecht 2022 lecture programme.

Samira Boon founded her studio in Japan and combines the adaptive and sensory qualities of textiles with computerized production techniques. Recent works in the Netherlands include Archi Folds and Hortus Bionica: innovative series of textile structures, which bring together technique, science and art. For their development she collaborates with Tokyo University, the Dutch TextielLab and the Sensor Lab. Her projects led to multiple textile innovations, which have been rewarded with e.g. the Creative Heroes Award and the Architizer A+Design-Award.
