Handmade Model Of Blocks And Grid (Netherlands)
This is a Handmade model of Blocks and Grid. It was designed by Scholten & Baijings. It is dated 2012 and we acquired it in 2014. Its medium is paper, cotton, polyester and its technique is machine stitching on transfer-printed canvas and fiberfill. 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.
