Christo has passed away!


Christo died on 31 May at the age of 84.

 

The Bulgarian-American Artist became known mainly for his wrappings of large objects such as landscape sections and buildings, which he had been realizing with his wife Jeanne-Claude since the late 1960s. One of his most spectacular projects was the wrapping of the Reichstag in Berlin 1995.

 

PHP Fibers was allowed to accompany the artist's work for many decades. Our Enka® Nylon was a popular raw material for his fabrics, cloth and textiles: The Gates (Central Park, New York City, 1979-2005) in February 2005, for whose approval he had to wait 25 years, or his world-famous installation The Floating Piers on Lake Iseo 2016 - just to name a few.
