This instal­la­tion made of 15 km of white wool took place in Langenthal’s Markthalle for a spe­cial event, the Design Prize Switzerland, which is held every two years. Twist was orig­i­nally con­ceived for the exhi­bi­tion Fabric of light com­mis­sioned by Lantal, a leader in the design, pro­duc­tion, and dis­tri­b­u­tion of tex­tiles and ser­vices for the inter­na­tional com­mu­nity of air­craft, bus, rail­way, and cruise ship oper­a­tors.
The main inspi­ra­tion comes from the fas­ci­nat­ing machines used in Lantal’s fac­to­ries to assem­ble all of their threads together to make one single piece of fabric. Twist intends to put in light this hidden process of fab­ri­ca­tion, with hun­dreds of strings all across a room with video pro­jec­tion giving them motion.
