Samira Boon is a textile architect, with a strong focus on creating flexible and dynamic environments, meeting the changing needs on spatial usage, climate regulation and acoustics. She believes that textile can accommodate and facilitate these necessities ultimately well.
Samira Boon studied architecture and lived in Japan for several years where she experienced the great values of traditional flexible spatial usage. In cooperation with e.g. Tokyo University and the Dutch TextileLab, Samira Boon researches computerized textile folding possibilities by exploring the complex origami techniques.
The 3D woven SUPERFOLDS and ARCHI FOLDS are two innovative series of textile structures, which bring together technique, science and art.
Studio Samira Boon works site specific and in close cooperation with architects.
