Studio Voltaire contacted Jim Lambie and the Modern Institute in 2016, to initiate a project with Dovecot on a unique rug titled Soft Machine, to be made available for sale and exhibited at House of Voltaire in London. Dovecot rug tufters Kristi Vana and Dennis Reinmüller began the sampling stage for this experimental work in August 2016 and completed the rug tufting in October 2016.
