Abstract [en]

This PhD project investigates the relationships between textile patterns, scale and spatial contexts from the perspective of textile design. In order to examine this area, a physical model in scale 1:10 was built to create a scenario for the design example. The design decisions were made to understand and to analyze what´s happening concerning scale and pattern. The patterns are tried methodically in six different scales and with the four most common repeat methods. This practical and methodical design example aims to share a systematic approach for a better understanding of scale and size in designing textile patterns and to find functions and characteristics among different patterns in spatial contexts.
