 With ‘The Katoptron’, The Fabrick Lab takes inspiration from the ancient form of mirrors, from polished metal to translucent gem stones, as well as combining handcrafted textiles from Guizhou's ethnic minority groups with hand-spun materials and Swarovski crystals. Using the newly engineered textile composite, which we named “Crystal Rock's Lace”, to create a new interpretation of a Katoptron that's  surface pattern and colour changes according to how light travels through it, offering the spectator different views depending on their angle of vision.
