The Space Loom #2 (previously called Seamless Loom) was developed as part of Interlace, textile research, commissioned by Lafayette Anticipations.
This project treated the topic of weaving not only as a craft with a long history, but also as a technical, thematic, and critical enquiry; a vehicle for cultural innovation. For three months, research and experiments in 3D weaving filled Lafayette Anticipations’ spaces, turning them into a designer’s laboratory, all the while questioning our relationship to textile, tactility, labour, and the natural environment, and the limited vocabulary we have to describe these relationships.

The Space Loom #2 was designed at Jongeriuslab to research 3D weaving. These are four looms cut and joined together to form a new machine to weave 3D “bricks”. For every new brick, the loom is adapted. New objects are developed in a constant interplay between the machine and the design it produces.
