Razzle Dazzle! Sylvain Willenz is camouflaging your living room

Belgian designer Sylvain Willenz took inspiration into “Dazzle Camouflage” to create this series of cushions for German brand Hem.

Imagined in 1917 by British artist Norman Wilkinson, the very Op-art Dazzle patterns meant to disrupt the observer’s perception of a subject. Used in American and British Navies at the end of World War I and a little bit during World War II, the enormous floating optical illusions disappeared with the invention of the radar.

The textile collection Razzle Dazzle, a graphic take on 3D knitting technology, was created in collaboration with Febrik, the Dutch brand formerly known as Innofa (the same brand which developed Marc Thorpe’s groundbreaking Blur fabric for the eponymous Moroso sofa).
