Fascination is a central element to Jule Cats’ designs, stimulating interaction between the object and the user. With her current handmade collections, she creates a sense of mystery by combining contrasting materials into one object. Transparent and solid, elegant and rough – every design owns a seemingly impossible combination.
The origin of the ‘IN DISGUISE’ and ‘RISE’ collection lies within the housing system of Dutch cities. Having lived in houses that were on the list to be demolished, Jule Cats experienced the grief that comes with being forced to leave your home.
With these handmade series she shows how beautiful the waste product still is. By combining concrete remains with polyester, she developed multiple designs showing its beauty and emotional value.
