building quilts

During our lunch at the Delta Bistro in Greenwood,MS I noticed the vintage quilts on the walls embellished by a local artist(should have gotten the name) reminded me of these quilts by Ronan and Erwin Bouroullec. Hanging quilts up in rooms is a very renaissance act-tapestries would go up in rooms during the winter to keep warmth in the masonry rooms and go down during the summer to keep it cool. In restaurants its a great device for dampening sound in masonry spaces.
