Designer Justine unravels the Delight collection
TRENDS | Behind the scenes.
“Hi Justine, as a way of introduction, can you tell us a little about yourself?”
I’m Justine Huysman, and I’ve been working as a product designer at modulyss for about 5 years. Previously, I studied textile design at the LUCA School of Arts in Ghent, Belgium. My job entails a lot of creativity, trend-watching and innovativeness. I thoroughly enjoy the process of translating creativity into carpet tiles and often take my inspiration from current trends found in daily life. For each collection, we look for a different approach to designing and always create a new concept. The main challenge during our design process lies in finding the sweet spot between creative freedom and the achievement of technical specifications in order to develop a high-performance carpet tile.
“What inspired you to design the Delight collection?”
Delight is our sophisticated response to the mixed metallic trend. Mixing metals by combining deep colours and different textures and metallic finishes, has been an edgy interior and fashion trend for some time. Recently, we have noticed that the line between residential and commercial spaces is becoming blurred. That’s why we wanted to respond to this trend with a new collection. However, in contrast to the bold presence of metallic shine in interiors, we translated it into a subtle gloss that gives the Delight collection a timeless and luxurious character.
