Joris de Groot is a designer searching for the tension between craftsmanship and industry in his work. Interested in collaborating with the industry, Joris creates his own workplace within the factory grounds. Once familiar with the process of the available existing techniques, he experiments with the available machinery and materials for new innovative uses. For the project Low & Bonar in4nite Studio Joris de Groot was inspired by the production processes of air filters, which are partly made of Colback. Inspired by the construction of filters made of different layers and materials, including Colback, Joris started his research for designing a new product. Especially the structure of the pleated Colback and the strength that this material brings into the product, was key for the design.

During this project Studio Joris de Groot collaborated with a factory with a specialization in laminating textiles and a factory with specialization in pleating. 

Joris combined different materials with Colback and played with various pleating patterns in search for the right strength, visual effect and tactility. The collection created by Studio Joris de Groot offers a new application possibility for Colback in combination with different materials, using existing industrial techniques in a new way.
