Modern museums, especially, the most prominent and famous – it’s great buildings or complexes of buildings, inspection of which goes all day and sometimes more than one. The man just can’t get around them carefully at a time without rest. That is to relax and create a place with naming «Textile Field» in the Hall Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Some time ago we told you about installation of multi-media mirrors, mounted on the patio of London Victoria and Albert Museum, the world’s largest museum of decorative arts. Today we will tell you about another installation in the museum, one of its internal halls, the hall of Michelangelo.
In London these days is the London Design Week 2011, in which the French designers Ronan Bouroullec and Erwan Bouroullec together with a Danish textile company Kvadrat provided installation «Textile Field» in the Victoria and Albert Museum. This installation is an area the size of 30 meters long and 8 meters wide, located in the hall of the museum, where are placed paintings by Michelangelo.
As the long-standing practice, in this hall visitors to the museum, examining pictures of the great Italian masters, spend most of their time. It is therefore logical that there should be a place to rest.
Here is a place for recreation installations «Textile Field» is. At the 240 meters of soft tissue space, you can lie for hours, enjoying the works of Michelangelo, passing from one painting to another.
For convenience of visitors to the central part of «Textile Field» lies parallel to the floor, so you can also walk on it. On each side this installation slightly curved upward, so that people lie comfortably and look at the pictures.
