Icons of Arnhem

Acoustic art on Colback nonwoven material by Dorota Roszkowska

We like to say Colback’s possibilities are endless. We witnessed the very truth of this statement when artist Dorota Roszkowska presented a stunning piece of art to us, made on Colback nonwoven. Managing Director Colbond EMEA Monique Buch was delighted when Dorota personally handed over her work at our Arnhem office in the Netherlands, where it will be on prominent display.

Dorota Roszkowska makes functional art that is gentle on the eyes and pleasing to the ear. Her Colback artwork is attached to a special acoustic board that greatly improves the surrounding area’s acoustics. Arnhem-based Dorota developed the concept three years ago when her discovery of Colback nonwoven and a request to create acoustic art came together. She immediately fell in love with the Colback material’s structure, shine and low weight. As a further advantage, it transmits sound very well.

“For this particular work, I used a combination of painting, drawing and printing”, Dorota explains. “The first layer consists of printed graphics, based on photography. In this work, all blue parts are actually printed. Then I take black acrylic paint and pencils to highlight contours and add depth. I have to apply them thinly, because it is important that the Colback material remains as “open” as possible to retain the acoustic benefits of the board it is attached to,” she concludes.

The work shown here is part of a series currently in development, called “Arnhemse Iconen” or “Icons of Arnhem.” The pictures combine different buildings and areas that characterize the city. It is art ‘Made in Arnhem’, in every respect.
