Tamar Balakjian cushion

click to enlarge

Tamar Balakjian is a knitted textile designer. She uses knitted tapes in most of her work, mainly using viscose yarn as it comes in a myriad of colours. Tamar is inspired by naturally occurring instances of the continuous line, looking at examples from muscle fibres to microscopic plant cell formations. To contrast this, she takes her colour inspiration from contemporary urban photography, giving her work a modern feel, whilst demonstrating her knowledge of technical and traditional skills. These beautiful cushions are hand made.
