Through the work of Tord Boontje, Studio Demakersvan and Cal Lane this article looks at Lace being adopted into a contemporary perspective. See link.

It is brilliant how from an old rusty tank you can create something which is definitely visually appealing by using a delicate form of lace pattern.

Again another Ordinary structure we see everyday transformed into something visually more appealing.

Update: Here’s an interesting video summary of the exhibition.
