Material research primarily determines all of Jongerius’ designs. Her vast portfolio includes single pieces exhibited at galleries, mass-produced products sold at retail stores, design of airliner interiors and even the redesign of the North Delegates’ Lounge at the UN Headquarters in New York. Jongerius was just beginning her career when she was approached by Maharam and invited to work on a project for their 100th anniversary. Maharam now produces 29 different Jongerius textiles, many of which are in the permanent collections at the Art Institute Chicago, Cooper Hewitt Smithsonian Design Museum and MoMA. Repeat Classic Houndstooth (2002) plays on the concept of random order as fabric meets furniture with a predictable yet uncertain result. This textile is a nod toward classic menswear textiles but enlarged to an exaggerated scale. Made in U.S.A.
