Print, Textile Design: Grid, May 2012

This is a Print. It was designed by Scholten & Baijings. It is dated May 2012 and we acquired it in 2014. Its medium is inkjet print on white paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Grid is an exploration of color by Dutch designers, Scholten & Baijings, who used an arrangement of parallel and perpendicular lines to create overlapping transparent layers and densities. Developed at the same time as another design by Scholten & Baijings, Blocks, Grid is also an upholstery fabric and can be combined with Blocks in multiple ways. Grid also has a long repeat—over twenty-seven feet—and Carole Baijings explained this idea: “In a Mondrian painting, the composition fits perfectly within the parameters of the canvas. Making a composition for an upholstery fabric calls for an entirely different approach. We opted for an unusually long repeat so that we can create individual differences within one product family.”

This object was donated by Scholten & Baijings. It is credited Gift of Scholten & Baijings.
