The Wander Collection is the brainchild of Kelly Harris Smith—a designer (and FilzFelt co-founder) who is inspired by her city surroundings and the roads, rail yards, sidewalks, crosswalks, and traffic signs that fill it. Available in standard and custom sizes in six unique patterns, these hanging panels divide, provide privacy, and amp up sound softening without walls. Choose from over ninety wool felt colors in these no-nonsense but always natural hanging panels.
Every city neighborhood is covered in lines, patterns, and textures found on manhole covers to crosswalks and traffic signals—objects that the majority of us tend to walk by without much notice. But Boston-based product and textile designer (plus FilzFelt co-founder!) Kelly Harris Smith zeroes in on these seemingly mundane objects for the design inspiration of the Wander Collection.
“I find inspiration almost everywhere I go. Whether it’s the color of the sky at a particular moment, the texture of a manhole cover or the patterning on a facade, I’m constantly recording. Depending on the type of project, I photograph, sketch, collage and even stitch my ideas before moving to conceptual drawings.”
