Imagine sailing away on a bold adventure around the globe, digging up the dustiest of museum archives and finding invaluable treasures: meticulous drawings of lost and ancient imaginary creatures.
With the Museum of Extinct Animals, Moooi celebrates nature’s diversity, stimulating to stretch the limits of imagination. Highlighting that the most invaluable treasure from past and present expeditions is the unexpected diversity of beauty, in all its forms. Inspired by these magnificent extinct animal drawings, the Moooi team created designs for a new fabric collection inspired by these extinct animals.
Come celebrate our launch of the Extinct Animal Fabric collection, during New York Textile Month!
Watch Lidewij Edelkoort, Trend Forecaster and Initiator & Editor of New York Textile Month and Christie Wright, Art Direction at Moooi, discuss textiles during a panel moderated by Metropolis Magazine’s editor-in-chief Avinash Rajagopal.
While you enjoy cocktails & hors d'oeuvres, discover how we push the boundaries with new textile production processes, how we created a fabric collection inspired by the Museum of Extinct Animals and how our sketches became reality!
