Hella Jongerious

In 2001, Hella Jongerius produced Mobile Dreaming, a collaboration between Royal Auping and The Fabric Workshop and Museum, to present visionary ideas from artists and designers on the theme of mobile living. Jongerius’ piece was a sleeping-bag and garment merged into one. The item was produced at the Fabric Workshop in Philadelphia and shown for the first time at De Kunsthal in Rotterdam.
Jongerius' Repeat textiles were commissioned by Moss Gallery in New York. These fabric were applied as upholstery on sofas and curtains, as well as on a small series of decorated objects that refer to the patterns of Repeat: Repeat Porcelain.
