Talking Textiles Exhibition Milan 2011
During the Milan Design Week in April this year, highly respected trend guru Li Edelkoort curated the exhibition Talking Textiles. The show consisted of a number of hand-picked designers that specialise in textiles, who Li Edelkoort believes are showing the way of future interiors.
From Li Edelkoort’s blog Trendtablet: “Edelkoort is promoting textile design talent at 2011’s Salone Internazionale del Mobile with “Talking Textiles”.
In the innovative “Ventura Lambrate” area an exhibit features the work of recent graduates showcased. The installation brings the freshest European design talent to public attention and expand our perception of where textiles can take us.
On show at the prestigious “Spazio Gianfranco Ferré” in Via Pontaccio 21 is a large selection of design that uses interesting textile techniques, heralding the revival of textiles in our interiors.
This large space includes the latest textile-based work by Maarten Baas, BCXSY, BLESS, Bokja, Fernando and Humberto Campana, Nacho Carbonell, Kiki van Eijk, Ora-ïto for Stepevi, Studio Job in collaboration with the Audax Textielmuseum Tilburg, Hella Jongerius for Maharam, Claudy Jongstra, Dominique Kieffer for Rubelli, Maarten Kolk and Guus Kusters, David Lynch in collaboration with Raphael Navot, Christien Meindertsma, Ulf Moritz for Sahco, Raw Edges, Scholten & Baijings, Inga Sempé for Moustache, and Paul Smith for Maharam, among many others.”
