PROGETTO PER HELLA JONGERIUS.
LONDON DESIGN MUSEUM. BREATHING COLOUR. LONDRA. 28.06.2017-24.09.2017
When Jongeriuslab approached us at the beginning of 2017, we accepted this new challenge with enthusiasm. While Hella and her staff were visiting our company, they had a good look at our archives and machinery. We put our technical know-how to use and immediately created a good personal working environment. We were then asked to collaborate on the development of a new concept for the “fading evening” section, the light that fades in the evening, for the Breathing Colour exhibition. Observing the creation of such a fabric with unusual and completely innovative aspects, was a unique and unforgettable experience for us. We were honoured to participate in this cultural project of great international importance, and to see our fabrics exhibited at the London Design Museum, in June 2017.
“Good mills like Torri Lana – with excellent people who are technically skilled and have a sensibility for the materials they work with – are essential for me as designer. The mill’s translation of my hand woven design samples into industrial products is one of the keys to innovation for me. Together, we push boundaries and Create magic”.
