Tactile Corpuscles

Our skin is an amazing organ. It is covered with more than five million nerve ends, or tactile corpuscles, that react to every sensation: warmth, cold, touch, tingling, tickling, and pain. We are built to touch and be touched. This haptic need is a subject that fascinates Sanne Muiser, inspiring her to create a ‘second skin’ of highly tactile fashion and interior fabrics reminiscent of fur. By needle-punching natural materials such as wool and sisal into a man-made latex base, two opposing worlds − and our associations with each − collide.
