Mae Engelgeer brings colour to the table
A new table linen collection by Mae Engelgeer for the exclusive by TextielMuseum label
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Bauhaus, the TextielMuseum in Tilburg is proud to announce a new collaboration with textile designer Mae Engelgeer. Inspired by the museum’s own collection and the Bauhaus movement, she created a modern table linen collection woven on digital looms in the TextielLab. Made for the by TextielMuseum label, the collection features an interplay of strong, graphic lines in subtle colours, woven in a rich structure. It is available from 19 October.
Inspired by Bauhaus
One hundred years after the Bauhaus was founded, the modern design principles of the legendary institute remain a source of inspiration for many artists, designers and architects. Mae Engelgeer’s collection is called ERA, as a tribute to the current centenary Bauhaus. The collection consists of a tablecloth in different sizes, a table runner and napkins. The Bauhaus influence can clearly be seen in the tablecloth’s graphic pattern and use of colour, as well as in the innovative yarns and variation in bindings.
The table linen also features a wide array of structures. This is achieved by incorporating multiple bindings in a single textile, which is technically very challenging. “I’ve experimented and developed new designs in the TextielLab for years, and in this commission, I wanted to push the boundaries of what a loom can do,” Mae explains.
