Close-up photographs of organic materials, such as straw and bark, provided the starting point for Tibor’s intriguing Fotexur patterns. A keen photographer, he drew inspiration from the natural world.
His eye was attracted to relief patterns and tonal contrasts in unusual places, such as fissures in a dried up river bed. Tibor also photographed his own weaves and used these images in his designs.
The Fotexur process began by screen-printing the photograph on paper, before isolating a section of the image and cutting it into squares or strips. Patterns were created by rotating and re-arranging these repeated motifs in different formations to create energetic and rhythmic compositions. Tibor’s bold choice of colour variations provided the final ingredient to these stimulating and eye-catching designs.
Printed on Forbo Flotex in vibrant colours, Tibor’s innovative Fotexur designs have a timeless feel, despite dating back 70 years.
