Modernism meets electrical tape
Author: Mariëlle olde Hartman-Toebes
HellermannTyton’s HelaTape Flex is not only suitable for professional electricians and installers. The young artists at the Gerrit Rietveld College in Utrecht, The Netherlands also use electrical tape. Not for insulating, bundling or securing cables, but for creating smooth lines in bold colours. HellermannTyton Netherlands sponsored one of the college’s projects with tapes so that young artists could get closer to Piet Mondrian, the famous Dutch artist known for his sharp lines and primary coloured squares.
