The print is made using dye-sublimation print on 100% cotton. Each cushion cover is hand-made and can be machine washed at 40 degrees Celsius.

ABOUT ELEANOR WRIGHT
Eleanor Wright is an artist based in Dusseldorf. A central topic in her work is the exploration of architecture and the question as to what architecture can be in relation to the body, and its role in the materialising of culture. As such, her work not only references architecture but also design, textiles and their wider relationships with society, community and space. Wright has exhibited her work nationally and internationally. She has undertaken several residencies including The British School at Athens, Cove Park, Helsinki International Artist Programme and was the first recipient of the Warwick Stafford Research Fellowship with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Northumbria University. She is co-founder of the curatorial gallery initiative Drop City.
