I work with textile fibres and traditional weave techniques to investigate spacious structures and tactile materials. From my studio in Stockholm I do self initiated projects as well as commissioned work.

Previously I have been involved in a research project at the ITKE, Institute of Building Structures and Structural Design at the University of Stuttgart, Germany, where I focused on woven structures for architectural applications.

I also teach weaving, design and form at Sätergläntan Institute of Crafts.

In 2016 I was nominated to Formex Nova – Nordic Designer of the Year with the following jury motivation:

Matilda Dominique weaves works of art with technical skill, a sense for textiles and enormous patience. She directs the yarn with exact precision and gets every individual fiber to communicate. Her weaving and braiding technique enables her to construct advanced three-dimensional structures that have a seamless design and a strong architectural expression.
