"What a wonderful, beautiful book put together by some absolutely brilliant women - Hella Jongerius for her open and inquisitive approach to art making, Irma Bloom for her sensitive handling of how to distill the work into book form and our good friend Alice Rawsthorn for her profound design knowledge. You can't really go wrong with this one!" Staff Pick by Claire.
Hella Jongerius and her design team from Jongeriuslab transformed the exhibition spaces of Lafayette Anticipations in Paris into a weaving laboratory, experimenting the future of textile making: digital, 3D and space weaving through different looms that they adapted or even made from scratch.
This beautiful book, sensitively designed by the internationally acclaimed graphic designer Irma Boom, is conceived as a textile object. Placing text as weaving, using Singer stitching for the binding and mixing two different printing techniques (offset and riso), the book itself is becoming a reflection of this unusual exhibition process.
Features text by award-winning design critic and author, Alice Rawsthorn OBE (former weekly design column writer for The New York Times, and author of the international bestseller Design as an Attitude).
Published on the occasion of the exhibition, Hella Jongerius: Interlace, textile research at Lafayette Anticipations, Paris (7 June – 8 September 2019).
