While paging through an old magazine I came across the photograph above.
Intrigued, I googled the name Demarkersvan and discovered a young design team based in Rotterdam who produce security fencing with a difference.
Joep Verhoeven, one of the young Demakersvan designers came up with this idea as part of his graduation project. He is utilizing traditional Dutch lace making techniques to change ordinary chain link security fencing into works of art.
Industrial fencing meets traditional lace. Ingenious!
Hi Robyn, I saw one of these fences pictured once before, but there was no reference. Thanks for figuring that out and finding the source - they are simply gorgeous!ReplyDelete
What a beautiful idea!ReplyDelete
Karin, isn't it strange to see something so ordinary transformed.ReplyDelete
B&W, exactly! There are so many amazing people out there with such fantastic ideas.ReplyDelete
That is the coolest fence! Very clever.ReplyDelete
We certainly live in a fenced up world...this is so much more beautiful than the 'cyclone' and 'bar' styles we see. Just brilliant!ReplyDelete
I am star-struck by this simple, yet brilliant idea!ReplyDelete
you find such great stuff :)ReplyDelete
Wow! This is terrific. What a great idea.ReplyDelete
OMG! I couldn't believe it when the first picture rolled up! I had to call Jim to come and see these amazing fences!ReplyDelete
Great idea, designers know how to make a beautiful surprise for the passers-by :)ReplyDelete
All I can so is "Sigh" with delight.ReplyDelete
wouldnt it be nice if they became more widespread!.......excellent idea!ReplyDelete
Wow! Wonderful idea and beautiful too. I imagine it creates a much happier mood for those on the caged side of the fence.ReplyDelete
That's beautiful. What a great idea! Rather than saying "keep out", it now says "come closer and take a look".ReplyDelete
Absolutely beautiful stuff Robyn - so much better than just ordinary netting.ReplyDelete
Ingenious. I wish other places were as creative, those fences are a thrill for a textile girl like me.ReplyDelete
You are a fantastic navigator taking us to ports unknown, showing us boxes, faces, lace chain link, and the wonders of the world. Your goggle gets a beating. Thank you for these generous gifts. Joan TuckerReplyDelete
We have a chain link fence between our property and an old graveyard. It was not our choice.. .there used to be an old country fence and wild plum bushes... I try to cover the fence with climbing plants and lattice... but wouldn't this "lace" be beautiful.... RoxanneReplyDelete

There's so much one could read into this project.ReplyDelete
