Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have designed the Textile Field installation at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London in collaboration with the Danish textile company Kvadrat. The art instllation is a part of ‘The London Design Festival’, 15 to 25 September 2011. Here is a description from the designer, “An invitation to lascivious reverie. Our intention is to propose a different, casual approach to freely experience what can be a quite intimidating environment, such as a museum.
We conceived an expansive, coloured foam and textile piece with gentle inclinations to produce a sensual field on which to comfortably lounge while meditating on the surrounding Raphael Cartoons. Everyone can immerse into this temporary installation, for a minute, an hour or more, that is the idea. No efforts, no apprehension just contemplation.”
