Made of hand-printed artificial leather, the Segment II tapestry was made as part of the final work and explores the link between Art Deco and contemporary art through colour and modularity. In the context of design, modularity refers to the degree to which parts of a product can be reconfigured, removed, or added. Modular textiles, the technique with which the tapestry is made, allow for multi-purpose use and easy shape transformation, and endless design possibilities based on different variations. The final idea was to create a work for the interior decoration of a space that a person can adapt to himself and his space by assembling and disassembling different parts.
