Lauba House, Zagreb: Behide


Openning: Thursday, 9 May at Lauba, 8 p.m.

The clothes we wear reflect our character. The materials we decide to surround ourselves with, reflect our sensibility. The objects we use complete and shape our everyday life. We aspired to design an item that would be a reflection of coexistence of items, clothes and space. An item that conceals, but is, at the same time, very breezy and partially transparent. It emphasizes the process of undressing and concealing and enables laying clothes aside. Although it does not fully protect from view of busybodies, with its presence, it separates the space and becomes an item that creates a space of intimacy. BEHIDE, as an item, subtly points to several purposes in the domain of housing and dressing.
