In her newest work she researched the process of hand-made felt and its application to contemporary furniture. Ayala Serfaty views each object as a canvas, where silk, linen and wools are molded to create seamless upholstered surfaces.

With the combination of the layered fibers that create a dense and intricate skin for each piece of furniture Ayala Serfaty intends to provoke the viewers’ and users’ sensibilities.

The application of hand-made felt to contemporary furniture creates objects with almost emotional expressions - they seem to come to live.
