One of the most colorful booths at last month’s ICFF show in New York City belonged to Floquem, which displayed a collection of neoclassical busts and sculptures finished with bright colored flock fiber. Purple, blue, red, and pink velvety fiber are applied with electrostatic technology to replicas of masterpieces such as Michealangelo’s David and new visions such as “Ludwig Van Creepy” a bust of Beethoven with a split head revealing a skull inside. It’s not for everyone, but the pieces would be a good fit for hotels, restaurants, and other spaces looking for a certain type of quirk in their interior design. All images courtesy Floquem.
