This handprinted ramie textile cabin, inspired by wood grain is originally made for an exhibition “ A true copy – young designers in the museum”, in the Danish Museum of Art and Design 1994. For the exhibition seven designers each made an imaginative invention around an object in the permanent collection. Louise Sass constructed a “Nomad Cabin”, in the form of a tent of material and poles, made as a parafrase of a cupboard from the Rococo period. People today need mobility or at least possibilities for flexibility in furnishing. The “Nomad Cabin” can be taken apart, washed and moved from place to place.

En Route # 2
Röhsska Friends. Röhsska Museum Gothenburg, Sweden.
En Route. “Undervejs” is the title of two large-format printed textile surfaces made by Louise Sass in 1996-97. “En Route” is printed on silk, each surface separately with many applications. On the black-painted ground the linear pattern has been etched again and again, each time slightly displaced; at first as faint, faded colors, but gradually, as the black base color is etched away, in brighter and brighter lines. Finally dark lines were printed on the tracks across the surface to create order in apparent chaos. The myriad of scintillating tracks across the surface is like an electrical discharge, an expansion of space. Vibeke Woldbye, Danish Museum of Decorative Art, from catalogue.
