At the Dutch Design Week the TextielMuseum displays its current program with an interesting Pop-up presentation. By showing three different components - an impression of Earth Matters, the exhibition by Lidewij Edelkoort & Philip Fimmano, new by TextielMuseum products in collaboration with Studio Job and an activity on one of the TextielLab machinery the visitor gets a brief tour through the TextielMuseum in Tilburg. Unlike previous years, the museum does not present itself at de Snelkookpan (Strijp-S) but at de Kazerne.
At the beginning of this year, TextielMuseum commissioned Studio Job (Job Smeets, 1970 en Nynke Tynagel, 1977) to develop a new series of design products for by TextielMuseum. These new design classics are a reflection on the history of the design duo and the endless possibilities of the TextielMuseum. The series features new icons with recognisable colourful and daring designs by Studio Job. With its graphic drawings the studio reduces shape and colour to strong outlines that can be perfectly translated into textiles.
After a nerve-wrecking voting campaign, the TextileMuseum at Tilburg turned out to be the winner of the BankGiro Lottery Museumprice 2017. The TextileMuseum has gotten 32.155 votes of the total 80.390 votes that have been released to the three nominated museums.
