Tesler + Mendelovitch is a textile and product design studio that creates innovative, wood textiles — transforming them into luxury projects for automotive, architecture and fashion. Inspired by minimalism, and mathematical precision — hard, brittle wood is cut and fashioned into a soft, bendable wooden textile. While the textile’s geometric surface provides the necessary strength and flexibility - the wood texture is also soft and pleasant to the touch, at once both delicate and wear resilient. These malleable surfaces are then sculpted into three-dimensional shapes; adapted and reinforced for a wide variety of applications. The flexible wood matrix (developed by the studio) determines its own configuration. As the material pulls itself into shape, the designers merely ‘freeze’ the textile in place - resulting in a myriad of shapes, product applications and concepts. Tesler + Mendelovitch continue to evolve and pursue multi-disciplinary projects, commissions and collaborations, all based upon their expertise and vision in innovative textile design and unique construction methods.
