contrast of culture and texture.

Not even sure how I fell upon these designs by  CTRLZAK Studios, perhaps a google image search?But their series flagmented is really cool.

Read about it below:
Flagmented is a series of works which integrate traditional fabrics from two diverse cultures, the European and the Chinese, blending them to form a single textile. The project represents a possible future able to surpass normal cultural borders and expressions. Classical European embroidery and Toile de Jouy are coupled with traditional Chinese fabrics forming unique pieces that stitch together the two diverse realities. The unexpected results mark a new era of globalisation becoming the flags of a new hybrid culture.

They have done plenty of other super cool projects like this entry way to a doctors office.  Check them out here.

And check out the original source I found them at The Public Art Initiative where you can purchase products by designers and help fund public art in your state at the same time.
