Jongerius chose six colourful animal prints from Hermès’ vast collection of patterns with which to experiment with. The pastoral romanticism of the prints is translated into a contemporary interpretation and the luxury of the silk finds its counter­part in materials like canvas and ceramics. The results were shown in the Design Museum Tank, the open air showcase of the Design Museum London.
