Making a Statement Sans Graphics
Situ Studios uses fabric to create a dramatic display.
Don’t tell your customers, but sometimes it’s possible to make a big statement without print being in the mix. Case in point: Situ Studio’s work for the reOrder exhibit that opened in March at the Brooklyn Museum and involved transforming the museum’s 10,000-square-foot Great Hall using 2440 yards of Sunbrella Canvas Natural fabric. The fabric, donated by Glen Raven, was pleated and stretched over metal frames “to create the illusion of growth and change among the columns,” with the fabric structures varying in size and volume. Benches and tables made of LG Hausys Hi-Macs acrylic solid surface were added at the bases of the fabric structures to complete the exhibit.
