Cool Idea: Lace Fence


Dutch design house Demakersvan combined the delicate with the industrial to create the Lace Fence (inquire for price), a custom, site-specific, high-end metal fabric that is unique to its environment. The fence can conceal or reveal its surroundings, to prevent climbing or to make note of boundaries.

According to Demakersvan:

Fencing is a sign of how we modified and cultivated our environment. Like brambles, fences are rising rampantly around us. What would happen if a patch of embroidered wire would meet with and continue as an industrial fence? Hostility versus kindness, industrial versus craft.

Personally, I don't think this beautiful fence needs to confront "hostility" directly, but it simply makes our mundane, everyday surroundings more visually pleasing. We spend so much money making our homes an aesthetic vision, but our municipalities don't do the same to our public environments. There's no reason industrial design should be overlooked. I think (or hope) that if we create well-designed public spaces, people will respect them as such.
