Play of Lines, representing a new style of artistic expression in textile art, won Dora Jung the internationally renowned Grand Prix in the Milan Triennale in 1957. It opened many doors and Dora Jung’s name attracted interest in art & design circles around the world.
Play of Lines, also presented by the Finnish state as an official gift to VIPs, is woven out of the thinnest and finest quality linen, Extra A, while all the other tablecloths are made out of quality A linen. Play of Lines was a classic at its birth and has represented Finnish arts and crafts abroad over several decades.
”Dora Jung’s Grand Prix will be the most important springboard to success and world fame for Finland”, claimed Mr Lombardo, an Italian cabinet minister at the award ceremony in 1958.
