On show is a large selection of design works that employ innovative textile techniques, heralding their revival in our interiors and expanding our perception: "After a reaction to the increasingly digital landscape of our lives, a craving for tactility and dimension has led designers to reconsider the role of fabrics once more. The near future will see the overwhelming return of textiles in our interiors, covering floors, walls, and furniture in an expansive and personal manner. These textiles will speak loud and clear, becoming the fabrics of life, narrating stories, creating pattern, promoting well-being, and reviving the act of weaving." Included are textiles, rugs, curtains, lighting, accessories, and upholstered furniture, as well as multimedia installations, films, animations and digital printing techniques.
