Meet Textile Designer Maria Viftrup


My name is Maria Viftrup. I am working with sustainability in the interplay between design, art and communication. I find sustainability very interesting. I like that it is challenging and complex at the same time. My focus is to transform complexity into something interesting and exiting. For instance, I have investigated the decomposing of materials by blending 208 different pieces of garbage into color pigments. I try to make people see the beauty in garbage. Not to justify that the garbage exist, but to respect the materials the garbage are made of, which are valuable, resources that we shouldn’t just toss, but learn to see the beauty, the interesting and the value og it. Maybe garbage is just the wrong materials, at the wrong place, in the wrong time.
