Introducing the Ayse Birsel Collection for FilzFelt
Turkish-born Ayse Birsel has created a collection of ready-made products to complement FilzFelt's existing product line. Birsel designs thoughtful, functional products through her creative methodology called Deconstruction:Reconstruction. The process helps breat preconceptions, shifts points of view to see things from a different perspective and reconstruct by creating new values without constraints.
Birsel deconstructed FilzFelt's existing design DNA which she describes as purposeful, minimalist, symmetrical, natural, graphic and scalable. In this she infused her own signature aesthetic, which utilizes the repetition of simple shapes to form intricate patterning at various scales. The collection expands upon FilzFelt's distinctive circle pattern designs, with the patterning of the Polka series, while Fringe and Doily series blends old and new with irreverent humor.
Select pieces were displayed in the Knoll showroom at this year's NeoCon and we are excited to launch this collaboration with Ayse Birsel. For more information, please visit filzfelt.com/ayse.
Polka 90 + Polka 120 Drapery
The colorful drapery products in the Ayse Birsel Collection meet the increasing need for adaptable workplaces by quickly and easily diving space. Installed with the integrated grommets, the drapery can be extended to afford some acoustic or visual privacy or slide aside to create an open workspace. Birsel's designs take advantage of the felt's natural ability to be cut with intricate patterning without the need for edge finishing.

Polka 90 + Polka 120 Floor Mats
Felt has long been established as a flooring covering material by nomadic peoples in Asia, where rugs, tents and clothing are still produced in wool felt. The Ayse Birsel Collection floor coverings are manufactured of the highest-quality 5mm-thick Wool Design Felt and are available in 5 colorways (all with anti-slip backing) in two standard sizes. Inspired by circular remnants at the FilzFelt factory, Ayse took this simple shape and ran with it. The Polka Floor Mats wholly embrace the repetition and rotation of circles.
