Throughout summer 2019, Lafayette Anticipations invites the Dutch designer Hella Jongerius and transforms the interior space into a giant textile studio, open to the public.

The building's performative qualities and the mobile platforms are used as a structure of a vast, constantly shifting loom.

Hella Jongerius is one of international design's most influential figures. Working from her Jongeriuslab in Berlin, her theoretical and experimental research explores multiple themes, often addressing the significance of colours and materials. The project she has imagined for Lafayette Anticipations is centred around textile and weaving.

In the world of fast fashion, textiles have become a throwaway product. This exhibition questions how we consider textiles within our lives, and the cultural, social and economic implications of textile production and consumption today…

The exhibition shows what consumers don't usually see: the research and experimentation, the tools and materials, the trial and error that are as important as the result itself. Throughout the three months of the exhibition, the public will be able to see new textile pieces being woven in the gallery space.
