Swiss studio Bureau Collective, founded by Ollie Schaich and Ruedi Zürcher in 2009, designed the exhibition identity for St Gallen’s Textil Museum’s recent show Furor Floralis. The exhibition showed the parallels between textile design and horticulture from the Middle Ages to the present day, with a display of costumes, textiles and garden plans from the landscape archive at the museum.
Their identity for the show, and now the accompanying book, gave a contemporary spin to the pieces on display. It recontextualised the exhibition within the framework of the current trend for all things flora and fauna, and conveys the long-standing position of nature at the forefront of artistic practice. The combination of textiles from the Middle Ages and still life paintings, with contemporary print and landscape architecture – offset by neon pages and abstract photography – makes for a great book that should, like it’s subject, continue to stand the test of time.
