Surtex's Designext New York by Invitation

Tori is invited to New York to exhibit her award winning Street Influences Collection of printed textiles and wallpaper.

Surtex® is an annual trade show for the surface design industry and brings together creators of surface design with manufacturers, retailers, licensees and marketers who use surface design for their product development needs.

As one of four winning international surface design students Tori was invited to Surtex® in New York to exhibit her Street Influences Collection of textiles, wallpapers and surface designs for room dividers as part of Designext’s® 28th Annual International Design Competition.

Tori’s award-winning designs were created based on a design brief of ‘Street Influences 2020’.  Inspired by the world’s eyes being focused on Japan in 2020 for the Tokyo Games and by graffiti street art, Tori created her designs around a combination of Japanese motifs and art processes using graffiti spray paints, airbrushing techniques and laser-cut stencils to represent the ‘Street’ theme.

Working within the ‘LIVE’ category, Tori’s 6 original surfaces designs featured beautiful and elegant printed-surface solutions, on interesting substrates, for dividing contemporary livings spaces of the future.  Her ‘room dividers for shared living’ concept was inspired by forecasts in population growth for 2020 and a sense that as the population increases living space will shrink and there will be a growing need to share and divide living areas into multifunctional spaces in beautiful and creative ways.
