A Rachel Whiteread-designed bed, called Daybed and manufactured by SCP, goes on show this week featuring a specially-designed fabric by manufacturer Bute. The Daybed appears in a display at the Royal Museum in Edinburgh. Called The Handloom and the Computer, the display showcases the design talents of Bute and Nuno, a Japanese company which specialises in textile technology. The display is part of the exhibition Meeting Points: New Works in Fibre, running from 18 May to 23 September as part of the Japan Festival 2001. The Daybed has been upholstered in Bute’s fabric, Tiree, developed in association with Whiteread.
