DesignMarch 2020

 

During DesignMarch 2020 (attention! new date: June 24 - 28), the Icelandic Textile Center presents the exhibition "Traditional weaving and the digital future", showing how digital technology can be used to take old weaving patterns and transform into new. 

The exhibition is a collaboration with the Iceland Innovation Center and located at Hlemmur - Setur skapandi greinar in Reykjavík. It features the outcome of two projects facilitated by the Icelandic Textile Center: “Bridging textiles to the digital future", funded by the Icelandic Research Fund, and "Innovation in Textiles", a collaborative project with the Reykjavík Academy of Arts, funded by the Student Innovation Fund. 

Displayed will be fabric and upholstery samples based on old Icelandic weaving patterns, woven on a TC2 digital loom; design ideas for new textile products; and a video piece inspired by weaving patterns by Australian artist Caroline Huf.
