Cirrus is a commissioned artwork by the Municipality of Tilburg, specially designed and handmade for the City Council Chamber in the new Municipality of Tilburg.
Within Cirrus the old textile craft of weaving is literally interwoven with the innovative art application of a selfdeveloped 3d weaving method,
also used in the Standing Textile(s) collection.
The object consists of thousands of threads, crossing in three directions, which form a whole from afar and symbolize the many individual streams of thought and ideas, that intertwine in the council chamber. The place where Tilburg residents are represented by the city council.
With its geometric lines and organic shape, Cirrus enters into a dynamic relationship with the architecture of the Council Chamber and Town Hall, that is based on the golden ratio. The cloud-like appearance of "Cirrus" brings the outside in and makes a visual and emotional connection with the multidimensional city that lies on the other side of the glass facade of the chamber and building.
