(MARIANNE) STRAUB 1970

Moquettes such as this example with a simple linear pattern were used increasingly in the 1970s and 80s. This design features a geometric intercrossing 'block' motif of navy, bright green, sea green and blue rectangles. The design was widely used on the Mark II 1972 Tube stock that operated on the Northern and Bakerloo lines, and on London Transport buses during the 1970s.

Marianne Straub was commissioned by London Transport to create livery for moquette upholstery on buses and trains. Originally from Switzerland, she moved to England to continue her textiles studies, one reason for her move was because Swiss technical colleges were not accepting women students at that time. One of three women on her course at Bradford Technical College, she paved the way for women in design and is celebrated for her services to textile weaving to this day.

A collaboration with Transport for London in conjunction with ‘We’re Going Out’, a music and fashion video by the collective Shakeable Germ. Inspired by post-lockdown freedom, 'We’re Going Out' is a burst of energy reflecting the return of normality. Fun and upbeat with electrifying visuals featuring dancers in the TFL print tracksuits in Charing Cross. Gresham Blake, the creative director behind Shakeable Germ crafted the tracksuits using the original TFL moquette designs.

To see the tracksuits in action make sure to watch the Shakeable Germ - 'We're Going Out' music video on Youtube.
