archive: 2014-2015 palace het loo, revolutionary exhibition concept

one of the most important interventions by curator nicole uniquole for the royal showpieces was the removal of the ropes, that prevented people entering the chambers. for the palace this was not without trepidation, but it is through exhibitions like this that palace het loo stays relevant in the future. a solution for the sometimes-fragile floors of the palace halls was found in printed carpets, designed in collaboration with maarten spruyt and tsur reshef. the ceilings designed by daniel marot consist of compartments with various painted decorations. the carpets reflect these ceilings, showing the visitors how new is inspired by old.
