TEXTILES IN TRANSIT // the thesis

 

The selection of textiles for public spaces is an essential task for interior designers, as they must decide whether and where textiles are needed as well as to what extent. Due to the wide availability and variety of textiles, the choice of materials and qualities becomes a challenging task, requiring interdisciplinary dialogue between textile and interior professionals. The objective of this thesis is to describe the contract textile business, the relationship between textile and interior designers, as well as the decision-making process leading to the creation of public places. This process is explored through observations and investigations in the field, in addition to expert interviews. The thesis presents a case study describing the integration of contract textiles in economy waiting halls and business lounges at Helsinki Airport that illustrates the conditions under which textiles are chosen, the requirements that they must fulfil and the influence of regulations on the designer’s work.
