Let’s start with Piet Hein Eek. Apart from his own designs, he also hosts work and exhibitions by other designers and artists. There’s a restaurant and fabulous shop too. It’s just a really cool place to visit.
Layering of reclaimed wood
Peeks into the ‘factory’ area
From the light into the dark. A little hidden upstairs was a beautiful exhibition with work from Tokihiro Sato (above) and Alexa Lixfeld (below)
More to see outside, like the little Liekeland wagon
Open Ended was beautifully curated by Lideweij Edelkoort:
One of my favorite designers, Pieke Bergmans was included as well:
Her ‘Phenomenon’ work was also on display in the attic of the old barraks area, gorgeous setting:
The Design Academy had an amazing graduation show. It was extremely busy though:
Limbo Embassy by Manon van Hoeckel
New take on ‘flatpack’ by Jong Ha Choi
‘Posture’, ergonomic clothing by Jeffrey Heiligers
Cyanotype by Moritz Pitrowski
Frozen by Maya Leroy for Keep an Eye Foundation
‘Not Another’ by Sara Sturges and Daniela Treija about the absurdity of repetitive design trends
City portrait by Jeroen van Oirschot. 700 photographs woven into a carpet
Onto some more design by various designers on various spots across Dutch Design Week. And can I just suggest if you’re planning on going next year: go for at least three days, there’s just too much to see and do and the atmosphere is so great.
The souvenir project
The making of the Gravity Stool by Jolan van der Wiel
Desso and Ex
We would like this in our living room please ;)
We saw a lot of optical illusion installations as well. Very cool.
Not the best photo (hello iPhone), but I just can’t stop smiling every time I see this table by Tibor Pasman.
And last but not least there were the visitors. Equally interesting to photograph, we think:
Hope you enjoyed our little tour of Dutch Design Week 2015. Leave a comment below and if you blogged about DDW15 too, feel free to leave the direct link.
