A palette for designers

A disruptive ceiling solution

After years of testing its Aeria* textile and stretching it to fit the myriad of situations architects and acoustic engineers have wanted to put it in, Texaa ended up developing a new open-knit modular textile ceiling solution mounted on frames with a more or less transparent appearance depending on the configurations chosen. Its technical and aesthetic characteristics appear to be turning it into a new-generation solution for specifiers.

Heathered shades or back to textiles

Historically there were always heathered colours in the Texaa range, but they were left aside in the 1990’s, when they were replaced by solid monochrome colours. They have returned as a necessity, triggered by the research done into reworking the whole colour range.

Interview with Bernard Demptos

Texaa began as a business venture in 1979. At the time I was no longer happy working for the pharmaceutical company I was with, and a friend happened to speak to me about a firm that had been making trimmings for over a hundred years – braid, silk cord, pompons and the like – for local slipper and sandal manufacturers, along with ‘open weave’, heavily sized textiles, like canvas, for the production of bags etc.

They gave me colour

Nothing escapes colour. It captures us before being captured. Seeing it is something else. Because it belongs to the sensitive order of the world, artists of all types – designers, architects, sculptors, writers, film makers and musicians – are immediately concerned. They seize it as if it were a phenomenon, whose principles, nature and effects are to be explored, which enables them to broadcast its physical and symbolic substance. Telling the stories of a few subjectively chosen works is a way to dive into colour and the experiences of it that those who created the works relate. A white page to cover with colours.

Texaa’s Origins in Textiles

Texaa’s hallmark, our “DNA”, is without question Aeria, a sound transparent, knitted fabric produced in our workshops in Gradignan, Gironde. Neither hand nor eye are left indifferent by the unique way in which light plays over its texture, creating an irresistible urge to touch and caress it, as if in search of intimate, insightful confirmation of something sight cannot grasp without the palpable experience of touch.

Textile and Architecture

It all begins with a shared experience, that of visiting an empty flat and of finding it horribly echoing and resonant. And then of discovering that by filling it with furniture, curtains and living beings, it suddenly becomes a particularly comfortable, cosy and appeasing place to live… Let us not forget that textiles have long played a key role in interior design, through curtains, wall coverings and upholstery etc.

“Silence is a real sound…” John Cage, 1952

The programme for a concert given on 29th August 1952 at Maverick Concert Hall in Woodstock, New York, announced that a piece of contemporary music for the piano was to be performed. And indeed, as one might have anticipated, the audience waited eagerly as the pianist settled down, adjusted his piano stool and unfolded his score. Only to then close the lid of the keyboard. Thirty-three seconds ticked by before pianist David Tudor once again lifted the lid.2 Not a single note had been played, but the first movement was already over… It was time for the second movement, and then the third.

L’Aubette Theo van Doesburg, Strasbourg, 1928

The interior design of the ‘Aubette’ building in Strasbourg is often referred to as the Sistine Chapel of abstract avant-garde art between the wars. The work was completed in 1928 by Theo van Doesburg, Sophie Taeuber-Arp and Hans Arp, and pays eloquent witness to the endeavours of Modernist artists working in this period to marry colour with architecture.

Colour and Architecture

Colour comes from the earth beneath our feet. Already in pre-historic times, man used the ochres and black manganese of the land, along with charcoal and red chalk, to paint frescos across the walls of the caves he inhabited. Later, he would use milk of lime to whitewash the walls of his home, together with a whole host of renderings, pigments, dyes, paints and colourings…
