Diary: Living Spaces / Makkink & Bey

1

One hundred years of textiles in Dutch interiors are celebrated in the exhibition Living Spaces at the TextielMuseum. The central question throughout is, ‘What role does textile play in the interior?’ Seven concept rooms display interiors from seven distinctive periods: Dutch Art Nouveau, 1930s’ modernism, the post-war period, the alternative 1970s, postmodernism and recent Dutch Design.  Each space is based on the ideal image of a particular design movement or a specific trend; such as the sunken seating area of the 1970s. Clearly visible is the mix of old and new throughout.

The ideal home that architects and designers visualise is one that few people can afford. Class division is illustrated via film fragments shown in each room. Comparisons are made between the comfortable middle-class living room and images of working-class families living in poverty in dark, dank, single-room dwellings.
