"Talking Textiles" at TextielMuseum, Tilburg (The Netherlands)
"After a reaction to the increasingly digital landscape of our lives, a craving for tactility and dimension has led 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 to become the fabrics of life, narrating stories, designing pattern, promoting well-being and reviving the act of weaving."
This is part of the proposal presented at the exhibition Talking Textiles, curated by trend forecaster and design curator Lidewij Edelkoort, at the Textiel Museum in Tilburg (The Netherlands) that closed some days ago.
The museum is a great scenery for the textiles world and explores the many possibilities in the field. It is a place to follow closely for its innovative presentations and research.
