Industrial Model Of Grid, Grid, 2012

This is a Industrial model of Grid. It was designed by Scholten & Baijings and woven by Textile Museum (Tilburg, Netherlands). It is dated 2012 and we acquired it in 2014. Its medium is cotton, linen and its technique is woven. It is a part of the Textiles department.

These samples show the developmental stages of Grid (see finished textile behind you), which Dutch designers Stefan Scholten (b. 1972) and Carole Baijings (b. 1973) either handmade in their studio or wove on industrial looms at the TextielMuseum’s TextielLab in Tilburg, Netherlands. Exploring material, color, and densities of the grid, the designers adjusted their design based on these experiments.

This object was purchased from Scholten & Baijings and fund: General Acquisitions Endowment. It is credited Museum purchase from General Acquisitions Endowment Fund.
