The Illusion Tea Towel from Normann Copenhagen features a graphical motif inspired by optical illusions. Designed by Danish designer Anne Lehmann.
When designing the Illusion Tea Towel Danish designer Anne Lehmann experimented with various geometric forms and the contrast between each side of the towel.
The Illusion range of tea towels consists of five motifs, all built on broken or disrupted shapes. This creates surprising patterns, each with their own expression that tricks the eye in different ways. The graphic design is based on geometric shapes and lines, such as grids, pixels, circles, rectangles and checks. Anne Lehmann tells us: “The idea for the tea towels came from a desire to use weaving techniques to create new patterns. I wanted to add an extra dimension to the design by creating attractive graphical patterns that add a new dynamic to a product that is often quite plain. This weaving is perfect for that purpose because it lets you achieve a different expression on the reverse side, even though the pattern is the same.”
Illusion is made from 100% thick and hard-wearing cotton. The colours of each design are reversed on the back, making it is easy to change the appearance of the tea towel, depending which side faces outward.
