french designers ronan and erwan bouroullec present ‘textile field’ a collaborative project with danish textile company kvadrat  on the occasion of london design week 2011.

installed at the victoria & albert museum, the duo was asked to intervene within any of the institution’s spaces for the project. the result is a 30 meter long, 8 meter wide installation which takes over the 240 meter square floor of the raphael cartoons gallery.

‘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, colored foam and textile piece with gentle inclinations to produce a sensual field on which to comfortably lounge while meditating on the surrounding gallery. everyone can immerse within this temporary installation, for a minute, an hour or more. that is the idea. no efforts, no apprehension, just contemplation.‘ – ronan + erwan bouroullec

  • This is rubbish. They have messed up. Out of all of the options available to them in the brief. This is rubbish. Standing up is not difficult. If you find a museum intimidating then don’t go to one. Paintings are not hung on walls to be viewed from the floor. Stupid design wank
