by Harry / September 15, 2011

For the upcoming London Design Festival Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec have created an installation at the Victoria and Albert Museum; an expansive, coloured foam and textile "field" with gentle inclinations on which to comfortably lounge.

Created in collaboration with textile company Kvadrat, Textile Field is an installation 30 meters long and 8 meters wide which takes over 240m sq of the floor of the famous Raphael Cartoons Gallery at the V&A.


Say the Bouroullecs, "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."



The installation will be on show from September 15th to September 25th 2011 at the Victoria & Albert Museum.
