The Museum Lab - new addition to the museum in the former Carnegie Library, decided to keep the 130 years old cast iron structure of the stacks. Between the 3 storey existing structure various rope lace elements are woven and knotted (all by hand!) for the visitors to climb, explore and chill in. The structural patterns used are traditional ones found in the Slovenian lace tradition that were made in the studio, while the connecting ropes are installed on site.
