Textile Design from Berlin (HaW at Bikini Berlin)
Konstantin Laschkow & Laura Krauthausen
With their label Case Studies, the emergent designers Konstantin Laschkow and Laura Krauthausen, who graduated in fashion design from Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin, defy the fast pace of fashion industry by intensive experimentation with material, tech-nique and form, and thus create innovative knit editions, on the interface between art and textile design.
Laschkow and Krauthausen concentrate on developing innovative sur-faces. By thoroughly conceiving patterns, which are the result of a small selection of chosen colours, they create designs that condense in front of the viewer’s eye into dynamic colour gradients.
In their current collection, they move away from exclusively producing fashion, and focus on home design. In April, Case Studies was represented at the furniture fair in Milan.
