Place Attachment

Attachment to our place of residency develops gradually over time and provides a sense of security, belonging, confidence. With our cosmopolitan lifestyles, this may become a rarity. Taking her hometown Gemert as a case study, Malou van Dijck has developed a method to preserve this idea. It zooms in on a location, from a town to its inhabitants, to their favourite spots, to the materials naturally occurring there. This information becomes the guiding principle in her design. The result: a set of locally sourced and produced table linen that allows people from Gemert to hold on to a piece of home wherever they go.
