Christiane Maurer is a German born textile artist, designer and design researcher. She lives in the Netherlands.
After her graduation in Industrial Design at Universität der Künste Berlin she worked as a researcher, focusing on the history of textile design and on the perception of man-made artefacts, which earned her a PhD from Delft University of Technology. As designer, she has a broad experience in developing woven textiles for industry.
This website features her work as textile artist, which is closely connected to her activities in design and research. Her double weaves explore the perception of colors in relation to each other in ever changing, often iridescent, color transitions and patterns. Looking smooth and industrial-made, they are, however, the result of a painstaking artisanal process that can only be realized by thorough craftsmanship.
