Talking Textiles in Stockholm
Lidewij Edelkoort is proud to announce that a new edition of Talking Textiles will take place from February 3 – April 15, 2012 at the Designhall, a new venue for presenting design in Stockholm, located opposite the Konstfack University campus. On show will be a large selection of design that uses innovative textile techniques, heralding the revival of textiles in our interiors. The exhibit is part of an initiative to discuss textiles, highlighting the importance of creativity and education at a time when the global market has put many textile mills in danger of disappearing. Lidewij explains that “Talking Textiles” will expand our perception of where textiles can take us: “After a reaction to the increasingly digital landscape of our lives, a craving for tactility and dimension has led several designers to reconsider the role of fabrics once more.
The near future will see the overwhelming return of textiles in our interiors, covering floors, walls and furniture in an expansive and personal manner. These textiles will speak loud and clear and become the fabrics of life, narrating stories, designing pattern, promoting well-being and reviving the act of weaving”.
Stay tuned for more information very soon!
