Biography

Ellen van der Wiel (The Hague, 1960) studied theatre design at the Rietveld Academy and interior design at the Artemis Academy, both in Amsterdam. She has worked as a costume designer for film and television, was head of media styling at the Artemis Academy and interior stylist for the magazine 'VT Wonen' and department stores 'HEMA' and 'IKEA'. She obtained wider recognition through her interior make-overs for television programmes such as 'Koffietijd' and 'TV-woonmagazine'. 

In 2008 Ellen made the decision to develop her own products, with self-produced felt as the medium. Using the name 'Feltgood by Ellen van der Wiel' she markets her art, including bespoke artworks for improving the acoustics.

 

Inspiration

Important source of inspiration is nature, but also Dutch Modernism, Bauhaus and Japanese design inspires her. The use of felt allows Ellen to create her own unexpected style. Colour transitions and rhythms are the starting point for her designs.

 

Design process 

Ellen produces her felt paintings by layering wool - sometimes mixed with silk, flax or bamboo - in different colors and graphic patterns and 'felting' it. She cuts the felted pieces into strips which she then arranges to a required design. The “puzzle” is then sewn together and stretched over a frame, emphasizing the linear pattern. When making the the felt paintings the reverse side of the seams is sometimes visible. This provides different structures and the colours and patterns of each side of the material play a role in the design.
