Elisa Defossez entered the competition with her Master’s Thesis Project Nukumori – Surfaces of coziness.

“Nukumori is a Japanese word that designates a feeling of coziness. Considered as a holistic experience, coziness is therefore lived through bodily senses, but also memories and feelings. Warmth, kindness, and the presence of a loved one have commonly associated terms in the collective imagination. Nukumori is a collection of surfaces. At the frontier of surface and volume, this mixed media collection is composed of textile woven projects and surface sketch experiments with various materials. This collection aims for a new interpretation of common disciplines, technics, and materials. Textile discipline is therefore seen in a broad scope. Texture and color subtleties are at the core of the collection, translating emotions and comfortable feeling in tactfully and materially ways.”
