Museum with Sunbrella Fabrics
Long known for its design excellence and performance, Sunbrella® fabrics joined the ranks of Norman Rockwell and photographer Sam Taylor-Wood as part of a unique design installation at the Brooklyn Museum.
Brooklyn-based Situ Studio conceptualized and created the dramatic installation piece, “reOrder: An Architectural Environment,” turning more than 2,000 yards of Sunbrella fabric into extraordinary canopies that highlighted the iconic columns in the hall.
reOrder reimagined the 10,000-square-foot Great Hall by pleating and stretching 2,440 yards of Sunbrella Canvas Natural fabric over metal frames around the classic columns. The result turned a classically ordered space into a place for museum patrons to relax and experience the installation.
The structures embraced the unique design of the room and transformed the scale of the room, showcasing both the magnitude of the space and creating a sense of intimacy.
