Every year the TextielLab publishes its yearbook, featuring the most interesting projects being developed there during the past year. The 2012 edition is designed as a continuation of the identity that was introduced earlier.
The book is executed with an open spine incorporating the distinguishing pattern of the TextielLab and TextielMuseum being constructed from the icon T, M, and L. There is a double cover applied, embracing the first and last section of the book. Due to this the cover returns on the inside displaying the clients of the Lab. This mix of papers and thickness adds extra tactility to the object. An elastic cord is especially developed in the TextielLab keeping the smaller Insert booklet on its place in the centre of the book.
Next to the graphic design presenting projects, stats and figures there was a photo series shot. Four projects are highlighted from the used yarns till the final textile pieces.
The TextielLab of the TextielMuseum is a knowledge centre that is highly specialised workshop for producing experimental knits and woven fabrics. Textile innovation takes place from yarns, to computer-controlled techniques. National and international designers, architects, artists and promising students are supported by product developers and technical experts.
The printing of the book is done by Drukkerij Gianotten and the book is bound by Boekbinderij van Mierlo.
