MONGOLIA PAVILLION


Title: TOIROG

The Mongolian installation will trace the circle of cashmere production across all the entities and lives it touches, drawing a sensory connection from designed cashmere products through to the mountain goats and the nomads that rear them.

TOIROG is the Mongolian word for circle, within which there is a rich emotional story to be told. From the tough, nomadic lifestyle of the goat herders, to the fine skill of the craftspeople who transform raw cashmere into design pieces, the installation will demonstrate this cyclical concept of cashmere and the lives involved in its production.
“Visitors are encouraged to touch and feel the cashmere cloud, evoking a sense of serenity, like that felt from a close relationship with the land” say the designers, drawing on a sensory connection with many aspects of Mongolian life through one of its most treasured materials. “The installation will hopefully give visitors the sense that a cashmere garment links the wearer with a great number of lives, from contented goats roaming the mountains of Mongolia, to the devotion of the world’s last remaining nomadic cultures, to the joy of the designers and craftspeople.”

The Mongolian installation aims to support the vision of the Sustainable Fibre Alliance, that all cashmere is produced in an environmentally friendly way that safeguards the livelihoods of herding communities and protects the important, fragile environment in which they live.

London Design Biennale Artistic Director’s Statement & Theme


“The theme for 2018, Emotional States, looks to provoke a broad interpretation across design disciplines, interrogating how Design can be used to make us happier and to influence our emotions and experiences. Biennale Artistic Director, Dr Christopher Turner, asks countries to address the theme from a diversity of viewpoints; variation and difference in design identities should be explored in countries’ proposals and designs."
