Sophie Lachaert & Luc D’Hanis

Nothing is what it seems. Sofie Lachaert – Luc D’Hanis robbed the banknote of its nominal value to make room for one’s own personal value and valuation… The familiar image of the banknote disappears and what remains is a subtly coloured pattern of lines. It may be designed to counter forgeries, but Verilin managed to translate the complex pattern into a digital Jacquard steering file. Quite an example of what professional craftsmanship, tradition and technology can achieve. ‘Getting richer while sleeping’ is a very ‘valuable’ set of bed linen produced by Verilin. It was awarded the ‘Henry Van de Velde 2014’ label.
